Dreaming California

On the way down from Berkeley to Santa Cruz, our friend introduced us to this beautiful rocky beach covered in tide pools. Green anemones, starfish, and spiky urchins were visible through the clear water, and the rocks were covered with California mussels.

Each tide pool was its own ecosystem, and when the tide was low we could look down into the pools at the marine life. It was a very cool beach to visit as an adult, and I would thoroughly recommend bringing kids here on a field trip.
