It may be winter, but that doesn’t mean much in Southern California.

The sun was out, the breeze was cool and the tide was incredibly low down at the Abalone Cove beach in Rancho Palos Verdes on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 8, where residents explored tide pools and the beach with ease.

Discovery Leaders with Waterfront Education and King Harbor Boating Association led attendees through scientific observations of the pools and gave them a better understanding of the rocky inter-tidal ecosystem and the predator-prey relationships that exist there.

During the low tide, the Tidal Splash explorers came face-to-face with some of the smaller sea life, such as crabs, sea urchins and sea anemones.
