A particularly prolific season for Bean Clams this year. (Still, kinda uncool to ride bikes through them, eh?)
Sounds like a good name for a band, eh? That's a sand crab catching micro-organisms with the its antennae, and a few "Bean Clams" nestled in the depression caused by the crab.
Receding ripple in the shallow water at low tide on Mission Beach, Ca.
Okay, so they're not white cliffs. Just the marks left by a receding tide on a flat beach in Mission Beach, Ca.
Most of the sandcrab is buried, with just its antennae-like parts straining seawater in search of microscopic critters to eat.

Low tide textures
This was an amazing sight! The high wind all day was creating seafoam which was being driven onto the beach by the wind. At sunset, the clouds overhead turned bright pink which was reflected in the seafoam and "white water". The color in this photograph has not been altered in anyway. It was THAT magical!
