I had some fun time at the South Cottesloe shore yesterday afternoon when it was low tide.
Many seaweeds were either exposed or near the surface. It got so shallow that taking photos of the algae became easy. And the shore looked so different from what I have always known. The algae have added colours to the shore.
Some green algae (possibly sea lettuce) and some fluffy-looking algae.
Sea grapes (Caulerpa racemosa) - these are really soft and nice to walk on :)
I didn't try walking on these - some calcified algae.
Sea tulips - more reddish than the orange ones that I came across so often on the shore. And by the way, for a few weeks, I haven't seen many sea tulips on the beach. They just seem to stop getting washed ashore.
The Waratah anemones on the underside of a big rock.
No idea what kind of sea anemone this is - but it looks nice.
