Low Tide

Early this week we had several days of minus tide, and I took advantage of that by exploring the rocks at Campus Point.  The shore crabs were definitely the most interesting and active creatures out there.  Watching them brought back painful memories of working with the crabs in a teaching lab while in grad school.  They’re feisty little guys!  And another first for me… a picture of one blowing bubbles!

  1. I agree, they do look feisty. 🙂 I wouldn’t want to get my toes near them.
