Sunset foreshore rockpools at Rocky Cape from a lowtide shoot. These orange stained rocks would have to be some of the most difficult I have ever walked upon. The angles and slipperiness just aren’t conducive to traffic, and the slightest slip would mean a precambrian quartzite punch to the ribcage. I was treading very gingerly I can tell you.
These rockpools are high and dry at low tide and probably 6-8 feet under the surface at high tide and teeming with seaweeds and other life.
I couldn’t help but be reminded of stories of the “primordial soup” with the sun falling into an active wave lashed sea behind the pools full of lower life forms.
