1 These tide pools are covered by sand until the winter swells clear them out. We went at low tide yesterday to explore them and welcome them back. Thank you for the great shots, Dave!
2 What a life, huh? Behind Sam the swells are nice for surfers.
3 Sam dragging the rope around that he's been working with. He's been into ropes - tying different knots, making shapes and nets in the backyard. I'm mostly happy for him until I get strangled by a dragnet ;0
4 The algae covering the lava shelf.
5 Ben and I are in the far left background exploring a small Ben-sized tide pool while Sam does his own exploring.
6 Found one to jump into!
7 Good air, Ben!
8 Both boys jumping at once :)
9 Ben absolutely loved it.
10 Off every side, in and out!
11 And again! Love the form on this one.
12 Now for the high dive. Brave little guy did it on his own.
13 Shells and coral pieces caught in a small tide pool. Lots of little hermit crabs hiding out in the shells.
