A lesson I learned while

A lesson I learned while tidepooling this weekend: no matter how pretty the starfish looks, sticking to the far side of the rock, nestled in alongside the mussels, alongside the bright green sea anemone, it is best *not* to climb out on the rocks to photograph it, especially when the tide is still going out. To do so, one may incur the wetting, and by wetting I mean a giant wave smashing into the rocks, soaking your pants, jacket, underwear, and forcing you, cold and shivering, to continue your adventures in borrowed clothing and squishy wet sneakers. Pictures forthcoming.
