The Pacific Ocean

So last week I mentioned that I went into the Pacific Ocean. To expand, I took an afternoon trip to Miracle Beach, which is on the Straight of Georgia, between Vancouver Island and mainland BC. It was really cool to go to a marine beach, especially one so full of life. The beaches in this area of the Island are famous for their oysters, which I got to hold, but put back because each oyster is actually layers and layers of oysters living on top of each other. I hope I get to experience another marine area before I leave.

I didn't realize I was going to THE OCEAN, so I was blah about the trip and didn't dress for a swim. I ended up going in once I realized I was at THE OCEAN

Each lobe is a bubble that you can pop, it is pretty cool.

I tasted all the different kelp I found, but they all just tasted salty.

We had him for a few days, until he was healthy enough to go to a foster gull place. So cute, but so stinky!

Hi Rebecca, You are quite adept at snapping the moment. That crab looks like she is trying to pinch you! Is popping bubble kelp anything like popping bubble wrap? I laughed out loud when I read the caption under the photo of your shadow in the ocean, awsome idea! So much life, I love it! Drew
