Baby Octopus

In an earlier post I told how as a child we would camp at Hobson Park in California and how we would find baby octopuses at low tide. I found this video on youtube of just such an event and thought I would share it with you.

As an adult I am more mindful of nature than I was as a child, but these explorations are what lead me to love the creatures of our world and do what I can to protect them now. As Maya Angelou says, "When I knew better, I did better."

What an amazing video. I love the Maya Angelou quote, it is so true. I just love all of the beach memories you share. 1 month and we're at the Coast again yippee! Kathy

Love your baby octopus video! I also found a baby octopus at low tide at North Island in San Diego last month. It was so cool!

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
