Tidepooling

While there, we had a -2.1 ft. tide, which was great for tidepooling. And it was an incredible tidepooling beach.

Nice tide pool shot. Colors are wonderful. You inspired me to take a trip over to the coast to see the seals. What a wonderful beach.

@Rebecca: The tidepool area was south of Seal Beach. The seals were at the south end of Waldport Beach on the north side of the Alsea River.
