Prince of the Tide Pools


Prowl the beaches of La Jolla at low tide to witness the free show Mother Nature puts on daily. Be sure to wear rubber-soled shoes, otherwise you'll risk getting green stains on your pants from slipping on the wet kelp and moss that slime the rocks. Check out the zillions of crabs, snails, and starfish that the receding waters expose in the rocky depressions where they abide. Enjoy the strange sensation of having sea anemones grip your probing finger. Marvel at the rhythms of the tides. The best spots are a short stroll along the water's edge to the south of La Jolla Cove. Just ask the natives -- they're happy to point you in the right direction.
