We moved to the opposite of the Wharf to an area that was out of the direct sunlight and somewhat block from the wind. We came upon a marina’s office/club tied up to the dock. Along the side of the office (the section that was under water) two different types of algae was observed, one was light green in color and looked like lettuce. The other was a darker green and looked like parsley. Also clinging to the sides was an orange, mushroom like looking growth. Two different types of kelp were observed, one looked to be a Hollow-Stemmed Kelp (a similar species of the Common Southern Kelp). The other I could not identify without closer observation.

We moved along the Wharf to a tidal pool (the tide was out at this point), again different types of algae, seaweed (Rockweed) and what appeared to be barnacles. Also observed were two ducks sitting on the rocks. One was a Male Mallard with its distinct greenish head, and what appeared to be a Female Mallard.
