All along the sides of the docks, facing North, beautiful, very large Anemones grow, some of them are grouped as in large forests, as we walked by, they were all open ,gently swaying in the tidal water. I love touching them, they close up very quickly, either in protection or maybe they feel they caught something…..    A lot of them are the most often seen  White Anemone,  but i found a few of the Giant Plumose Anemone,   ( metridium farcimen), these beauties grow to be one meter tall, and are found from Alaska to Mexico. They are called animals, i always forget that, as they look like plants, but they eat other critters, well yes, some plants do too, but like i said, they are animals.
