Closest we get to a tide pool, and you can't really even call them that...
(Noticed a really interesting effect on this jetty; the inlet side had blue mussels and barnacles; the other, green and brown algae and no mollusks.)
Rockweed, an algae. Better known as "poppers" to kids growing up along the Jersey coast... (Dried to just the right consistency, those air bladders give a nice satisfying *pop* when squeezed.)
Lunch Wrapper. (spider crab carapace)
Tide's coming in, time to go.
One last shot.
Jim McCormac's blog is a must-see for the close-ups from our field trip!
