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.

SEAWEED ART – EDITED BY ME, CREATED BY THE SEA!

SEAWEED ART – As I walk along the edge of the sea with my camera in hand, I take photos of the art created by the sea!  An ever changing art installation proving the beauty of impermanence of life.

BEACH ART – SEAWEED & COBBLESTONE HEART

BEACH ART – Sometimes nature leaves arrangements on the beach that are so beautiful.  This Frog sea shell & seaweed are gorgeous.  Other times people give nature a helping hand.  Two very creative little girls created a giant heart out of cobblestones & seaweed.  Next to it they made a sort of “nest” out of sand & Surf grass with cobblestone “eggs”.  All in all a delightful day at the beach!
