Golden Gardens Tidal Pool

…the tidal pools area brims with sounds, colors, smells, and textures. Waves and gulls dominate the Sound’s waves, regularly interjected by crows and ducks. Finches’ chirps are dampened by brush and tree foliage. The grey, coarse and water-compacted sand turns into a rich palette of algae in different shades of greens, sparkled with yellow, orange and red. The clear tide pool water offers a distinctive and powerful smell, interspersed by the coastal Pacific breeze. The smooth yet hard surface of pebbles is the backdrop for the bouncy and buttery texture of sea anemones and jellyfish.
