Today my friend Megan and I explored the tide pools at Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma.
The rock formations here are incredible. It is as though they were not created haphazardly through the processes of weathering and erosion.
The layers of sedimentary rocks inspire questions about what treasures (in the form of fossils) may be found within these very rocks.
We arrived at the tide pools about 3 hours after low tide. I thought we would still be able to examine the different tidal zones, but at this point the tide was too high. We saw some organisms, but I had my sights set on a brittle star!
Shaw's Agave is rare in California. It blooms from September to May, and is worth seeing. The flowers are an explosion of color.
Today was just another reminder as to why we are so lucky to be living in San Diego.
