Princeton By The Sea 2008

Just over a week ago, we headed over to the coast to visit our favorite tide pools. According to the tide tables, the low tide that day was going to be -0.2 feet just after mid-day. As you can see from the images above, this gives you great viewing. We were able to go out further then we'd ever been before. We even took the dog out with us. She loved it and totally exhausted herself.

We also discovered pools which were teeming with wild life. "Just like Hawaii!" as one of the other tide-poolers said. I saw how shells were used to protect against the heat of the sun. I wasn't sure the creature inside was still alive until a little girl poked it and it closed right up. After that, I started seeing these little shell mounds everywhere.

Yes, that really is bird guano. Charming isn't it? Did you spot the big odd man out in that photo?

The giant ping pong ball building is on top of the cliffs over looking the tide pools. Here's its location. Anybody know what it is?
