I am slow on blogging! We drove up to the tidepools in Salt Point National Park last weekend. We’ve been managing to get some wedding things done, so that’s good, but still so hectic. I swear, all I think about right now is “Do wedding things! List Etsy! Get day job projects done!” I need a proper vacation. But this helps!! Mama Ocean beckons! We needed magical sea-life discovery time, so I’m so so glad I stopped beating myself up for taking a dang day off. (Have you read Becca’s awesome post about taking a break from wedding planning on Souris Mariage? So good. Also applies to, you know, LIFE.)
Moonrocks. The cove used to be called Moonrock Cove, I guess? I cannot imagine why!
The teeny wee babies had black and white striped legs and the big ones bright blue.
I couldn’t figure out how to capture the mermaid grotto below on film – I should have video-ed it. Every possible color of green, all swaying and moving with the tides in different directions…
Resting on a fallen log.Spot the tiny bird?
We always stop at this ice cream parlour in Petaluma. Treasures.
What am amazing little getaway. I need to check out this state park at some point. It looks incredible.
We stayed at St. Orres last year when we went:
But we had missed these tidepools somehow!
Aaahhh, your photos always make my jaw drop!
Ummm, can we go here when I come? I need to see anemones.
So beautiful! I dreamt I was buying scarves for my trip!
Yes! Orabelle has been broken since the week after we got here because we can’t afford to have her fixed, but we will try before you get here!
more wonderful stuff pls
I love tidepools with all their creatures and colors, and these photos are stunning. I think this weekend away was a very worthwhile idea.
Gorgeous. I am jealous of the ocean views there. Underwater creatures!
