At the Tide Pools

Exploring in the tide pools was another 'must' during our time at Sea Ranch.  The three of us went out one morning to a spot we'd been before.  It was much more challenging to get to with a little one, super windy, and there wasn't much to see. 
But we did track down a starfish and let Noah hold it for the first time.  He didn't know quite what to think of it, but was curious nonetheless.

The next day, we headed to a much better spot with all of the family.  I love that Grandma didn't hestitate to get into the water a bit to explore.
I taught the kids to gently touch the anemones and watch them close up.

Noah thought that was pretty fun and laughed every time he touched one.
Olivia wasn't super thrilled to be holding the starfish, but she held on long enough for a picture.
We had a great time exploring together and finding lots of creatures.  Everything, even tide pooling, is better with family!
