    Only the bright one was dying, Isabel. Standard tidal action on the pink ones, they survive there just fine.

    No, Physioprof, I blame the Jews;).

    Seriously, that is interesting, Bikemonkey, as I have never seen them spread out on the beach at low tide. Usually they are in tide pools or other protected areas.

    The shore in the pictures is teeming with life, that’s for sure. The bryozoans under the rock (if that’s what they are) are cool also.
