Tide Pools

I posted an article showing Terramar Beach in Carlsbad California during high tide. Now I would like to show you what was under that high tide. Here are the tide pools I mentioned in the other article. This area is nicknamed Carlsbad Tide Pools.

Our sand is a mix of gold and pyrite.

In the distance you can see the bluffs we sit on when the tide is high.

It is so pretty here. A lot of people come to check out the pools left behind.

Here is what they look like up close.

The water is very clear.

I didn’t notice that there was a pearl in the shell here. Until I got home that is..

This shell was such a pretty pink! With the pink plant too.

These are Sea Anemonies.

A sea anemone is a sessile polyp attached at the bottom to the surface beneath it by an adhesive foot, called a basal disc, with a column-shaped body ending in an oral disc. Most are from 1.8 to 3 cm (0.71 to 1.18 in) in diameter, but anemones as small as 4 mm (0.16 in) or as large as nearly 2 m (6.6 ft) are known. They can have from a few tens to a few hundred tentacles. They come in a variety of colors.

I will end this with a dog head shaped rock. I think it looks like Pluto.

Enjoy!

  1. That is so awesome! Amazing photos. I did not know what the sand was. I lived in Vista for a summer years ago and used to go to Carlsbad and Oceanside all the time. Thanks so much for bringing back wonderful beach memories. I could be there ALL DAY with no problem. Also, your dog looks so much like my Balti. He loved the water too. People thought he was a wolf mix… maybe he was.

    • I grew up in Vista. You are welcome, all the pictures I post are close, either vista, carlsbad or oceanside. Meika came from Julian, shes 25% shepherd, and 75% wolf. Glad I was able to take you back down memory lane.
