Today is the day we've all been waiting for.
Well, at least I have.:)
We're going to put on our wellies and walk on the beach!
The Wickaninnish Inn has a wildly gorgeous beach just steps away...
Rocks to climb and intense waves when the tide comes in. They are powerful!
But when the tide heads out there are tidal pools to explore and natural treasures to be discovered...
At first all we saw were clams and seaweed. But then, we looked closer...
and discovered jewel toned *starfish* and vividly green anemones!
We couldn't resist gently touching them. The starfish were rough and didn't move but the anemone were quite different. They withdrew as if we were something delicious to sample!
Even the grown-ups were captivated!
My mom discovered this nest of starfish friends. I still can't get over their stunning colors.
Here's our brave band of explorers. It was lots of fun rocking the boots.;)
It's not every day that you get to take a selfie with starfish!
Waiting until the tide comes back in to cover them up...
It seemed that every hour was the perfect time for pictures.
And we wanted to capture every second.
and yet peaceful at the same time.
Night night, everyone.
