Welcome, Springtime Low Tides Jen Strongin April 29, 2018 Each breaking wave, each rush of the sea on the slope of sand, reminds me why these places of pilgrimage matter. They matter to me because in the long view, I do not. I am driftwood. I am rockweed. I am osprey and the mackerel in the clutch of her feet. I am a woman standing on the edge of the continent looking out. — Terry Tempest Williams Purple ochre star- Constellation Beach Ochre Star-Constellation Beach Green sea urchin-Constellation Beach Stringy acid kelp/Witches hair-Constellation Beach Acid kelp-Golden Gardens Sugar kelp-Golden Gardens Red eyelet silk seaweed-Constellation Beach Succulent seaweed/Sea noodles- Constellation Beach Sea grape-Constellation Beach Seaweed- Constellation Beach Moon snail egg case-Constellation Beach Whelk eggs-Constellation Beach Sea lemon eggs-Constellation Beach Shaggy mouse nudibranch eggs-Constellation Beach Sculpin eggs-Constellation Beach Aggregating anemones-Golden Gardens Plumose anemone-Constellation Beach Plumose anemone-Constellation Beach Decorator crab-Constellation Beach Kelp crab-Constellation Beach Coonstripe shrimp-Constellation Beach Top snail-Constellation Beach Clam shell with evidence of Moon Snail predation and covered in tiny, baby barnacles!
