Treasures from the Oregon Coast

Memories ... 
our trip to the west coast of the United States
was packed with sweet memories
I have been making a photo book 
in hopes of capturing some of the beautiful times
we shared together.

One of our favourite places was Indian Beach, in Ecola State Park.
The beach was stunning and picturesque, 
and the shifting tide allowed us to spend hours
getting lost exploring tide pools.

Being a homeschool mom, 
I couldn't help but prepare for this much anticipated event,
and I found some tide pool I.D. charts online
{you can see them pinned them here}
I laminated them {to waterproof}
and handed them out before we left home.
The charts came with us to the tides pools,
and were so helpful in identifying the treasures we saw.

From sea stars and anemone to chitons and barnacles,
here are some of our
tide pool treasures...

Here they go, with their tide pool ID sheets, ready to explore! 

Thank you Indian Beach!
