The Green World At La Jolla Shores Tidepool
What Do You See in these rocks? I saw Eerie Green Guards of the Tidepool, Look at those watchful eyes!

 What Green Did I See?
 Green Anemone
 Egret Tidepooling in Green Rocks
Orange in Green
( I wonder what the name of this orange creature is, it looks like a jell, but I was scared to touch it may sting )

 Reflection of Orange Starfish and Green Rocks

Maroon Starfish on Green Sea Weed
All tidepool pictures above were taken from Dike Rock Tide Pools, north of Scripps Pier and La Jolla Shores. You will see here a lot of biology students with their data sheet and camera observing the changes of tidepool life in the area. In the midst of these green rocks are diverse tidepool creatures. 

Good Time to Visit for Tidepooling: Any time of the year as long as it is low tide. Check La Jolla Tide Table or you can also download Tides for Iphone apps, perfect apps to check for tide data wherever you may be. In San Diego, most of the low tides in day time occur from late fall to spring, with negative low tides (the best time) mostly in the winter. The photos above were taken at 0.4 ft low tide.

Parking: Parking is free at La Jolla Shores Beach Park, then you walk North along the sandy beach of La Jolla Shores towards Scripps Pier. The Dike Rock tidepool is a little bit further North of Scripps Pier. This tidepool area is located on University of California-San Diego property and is part of the La Jolla Underwater Park Marine Reserve
