Description

I'd never seen so many Metridium senile (Short Plumose Anemone) in one place! This is a tiny island that emerges only with a very low minus tide in an artificial channel with rapidly flowing water during the tidal changes, like a very fast flowing river.

This Nucella canaliculata (Channelled Dogwinkle) was one of many living on the wooden tower. I had never noticed them there before, but they are the most common snail in that area. The ridges on this 1" dogwinkle are quite pronounced.
