The rockpools seemed different, yet again. Rockpools that had previously been clear had a lot more aquatic plants. We had to visit at the lowest tide of the day to find the interesting stuff.
We had to walk out more than 2/3 of the way to the waters edge. It was at that point where we started to see a lot of seastars. Previously, we had found them in the shallower areas close to shore. These seastars indicated a change in environment.
It’s likely there was more marine life in the areas we ignored. I *may* have gotten distracted by a cool ascidian. I’ll share more about that in a future post 🙂
