Tidal Pools

Today was the best!  Mom, Dad, and I took a hike on the beach!  We went to Beach 3 on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

Mom wanted to take some photos of the sea creatures living in tidal pools.  

Tidal pools are beautiful.  They are little colonies of life between the land and the sea.  When the tide goes out, you can see wonderful creatures in puddles or clinging to rocks.  

When the tide comes back in, these sea creatures and their homes go back under water.

The tide was just coming back in when we arrived at the beach.  Here are some of the photos that Mom took:
