The tidepools were amazing. What a subtle world of beauty. If you notice, the tidepool is in the shape of a lopsided heart.
I am continually entertained and amazed by the placement of hearts and other shapes throughout nature. I found this beautiful seaweed heart in a tide pool. There are several hearts to be found here.
The tide was coming in, crashing along the sides of the sandstone cliffs.
Pacific City on the Oregon Coast is renowned for its Dory Boats and for its surfing--though all surfers wear wetsuits to protect themselves from the cold waters. I asked one of these athletes why they went out along the cliffs. He explained that during high tide a strong rip tide develops which is used to take them out to the big waves. He smiled and said it was much better than paddling all the way out there! Who knew?!
There is a sideways heart in the crown of that stand of trees. There were two ocean sky opals the night before we left. It is always magic to see one of these beauties.
