This was a trip of many firsts for us. We saw hundreds and hundreds of starfish, some that I'd never seen before. We saw millions of tiny crabs in what looked like snail shells, anemones, and creepy crawlies I don't have names for. Walking on the rocks, looking into their worlds is somewhat of a stressful experience though. Each individual rock has many creatures living on (and under) it that I might smash. It's weird to think each step I take actually has effect on another living thing, so I walked very carefully.
Maybe I always should.
What started as a mediocre (and somewhat annoying) day turned into a pretty happy day. It's a nice reminder what seems so horrible will pass by, some times quicker than others.
These buds are in my backyard. I can't wait to see what they transform into. (Does anyone know what they are??)
