Tidepooling in Malibu

Today I went Tidepooling at Paradise Cove in Malibu. I had an absolutely AMAZING time!!

What an awesome day. The sun was beautifully warm and there was a slight chill in the air to remind us it is still winter. The pools were brimming with sea urchins, star fish, shells of all shapes and sizes and ocean birds galore!

Until today, I had never seen a star fish up close and personal. For some reason, I thought they were a mush texture -- like the sea urchins. Turns out they have stiff hard shells. All of the ones I saw today were a gorgeous purple colour!

elizabeth...nice composition on the seagulls...a real tight shot would have been even better... just the birds ,water,and the rocks...seagulls are a lot better than pigeons..
