Just down the road from The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek is an amazingly beautiful cove with wind and water eroded rocks. At low tide, it reveals a diversity of life amongst the rocks and crevices. It’s thrilling to see all the water creatures clinging to the rocks and the vibrant colors of starfish contorted in the pools.
The flowers along the road were in full bloom and so pretty!
Here’s a view of the cove from the top of the hill…

A kelp bed exposed at low tide. I tasted a bit – it was rather rubbery and salty and supposed to be very good for you to eat.

And here was a purple one!
Our friend free dives for abalones and had brought his gear along to see if he could bring up some big ones. You have to get a abalone permit and they have to measure a certain size to be able to keep them.
A keeper – we’ll be having fried abalone!
