Minus tide at Duxbury Reef

Some of my friends wanted to go tidepooling, so we had this nice minus tide on the calendar. Lots of kids in tow so hard to cover too much ground or do too much extreme tidepooling, but saw some cool stuff.

This was only my second trip to Duxbury, and the last time I went I didn't go over 'the ridge' to the south so I was determined to get there this time. It was definitely worth it. While there were tons of people near the entrance, almost no one was over the ridge. I was greeted by a nice Great Blue Heron for Heron Week foraging among the tides.

It was weird because there was so much freshwater runoff from all the rain we're getting that the pools were a bit fuller than usual despite the low tide, and annoyingly cloudy. My main mission was to find an octopus for the kids. I succeeded in catching the second one we saw. There was a crazy abundance of Hopkin's Roses and we found a few Hilton's Aeolid. Other than that nothing to out of the ordinary, but it was such a beautiful clear day and was so much fun to splash around in the pools with my one year old, that this was definitely one of my favorite tidepool outings ever.

What an awesome outing -- love that the kiddos were involved too. :) It's always fun to run into a group of kids and show them how cool critters are. :)
