Olympic Coast Trip - Returning

On our hike back to Rialto beach we saw many new lifeforms which we didn't find the first day. First we saw some seals lying out on the rocks. I tried to get close to them, but I gave up while trying to navigate a maze of slippery rocks sticking out amongst the water. We next came to an area filled with tide pools revealed from the low tide. We saw all types of starfish and sea anemone. Finally as we got closer and closer to civilization we saw more and more people. The day before when we hiked in we were entirely alone in this coastal wilderness.
