Another modest low tide in Seattle made going to the beach a colorful experience.  Among the more colorful included an orange/pink flatworm, blue siphon entry Gaper Clams, and a shocking green mouth of a Moonglow Anemone.....more flatworms, anemones eating barnacles, Purple Sea Stars with an extra ray,
and a young colony of Bryozoans....all this for just an hours time poking around on a beach.
