Tidal Pool

Aggregating Anemone (Anthopleura elegantissima)

Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area beside the lighthouse and depending on the season the ability to observe gray whales. Another item that you can do while visiting is to visit the tidal pools around the Cobble Beach. There are warning signs to watch for sneaker waves which can be deadly.

I spent all of yesterday, selecting and processing images that I obtained at the tidal pool. Next, I searched Google for help in identifying the creatures that I had found. Several sites had both pictures and discussions on what was found in the title pools.
