After visiting several places dear to Sarah’s’ childhood we made our way to Agate Beach in Bolinas for some tide pooling.
It was about two hours before the low tide of the day, yet the tide pools were accessible and teaming with life. We carefully maneuvered our way along Duxbury Reef being extra careful not to disturb any wildlife. Although the majority of the Anemones were closed up, the colors and textures were still outstanding.
Several Turkey Vultures along with a couple of Ravens were quietly perched on a prominent rock.
If you look closely you can even see some filth left behind on its wing feathers.
We continued north and spotted a large group of Harbor Seals laying on the reef in the distance. I made my way closer to the seals yet remained the proper 300’ distance from them as I set up to take photos. At that distance my lens is just not quite powerful enough to capture the detail of the seals. I love how relaxed they look!
On our way home we stopped along the Bolinas Fairfax Ridge where we spotted a coyote on a distant hillside.
