TIDE POOL LIFE – SEAWEEDS, SEA SHELLS, ANEMONES & SEA URCHINS

TIDE POOL LIFE – Illustrations from my photographs.  After large winter storms, clumps of sea weeds & sometimes a branch of coral wash up onto the beach.  One winter lots of living Wavy Turban shells ended up on the beach, too.  Hopefully the high tide arrived & took them all back to their home in the sea.  Decades ago Shell Beach in La Jolla had wonderful tide pools filled with sea anemones, hermit crabs, sea urchins & lots of sea shells.  Spending time at the beach has always been soul fulfilling.  When I spend time looking at these photos & creating illustrations from them, I remember that I will always carry this beauty in my heart.
