While on a family vacation this past summer, we stayed in Tofino, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia for a week. I loved checking the tide charts and heading out to different beaches at low tide to look for marine life. My daughter became a whizz at finding all sorts of strange little creatures in no time! It was addictive staring into crevices, turning over rocks, and just waiting for the sea life to appear. But I became equally intrigued with the designs mother nature sculpted in the sand, from ripples to flowers…

Purple olive snails often leave trail lines in the sand at low tide
A stranded Ocher purple sea star with barnacles on a rock
Green Anemones buried in the sand were everywhere!
