Swami's Beach tide pools, Encinitas, CA


Swami's Beach tide pools in Encinitas, California, looking north.  Taken on October 15, 2015 with a Panasonic DMC-TS6D LUMIX Tough Camera.  I went during low tide and this is what I got, the tide pool area was smaller than expected, maybe it is better if you go at a really low tide instead of an average low tide.  The beach also has limited parking a few flights of stairs and some rocks.  Surfing looks good though.

La Jolla Shores Lobster


A spiny lobster seen while snorkeling at La Jolla Shores, ~10 feet underwater on October 8, 2015 taken with Olympus TG-4 16 MP Waterproof Digital Camera.  I used macro mode at full zoom.  You can see why I think the Olympus takes better underwater pictures than the Lumix.

A kelp bass at La Jolla Shores, California, taken while snorkeling on October 7, 2015 with a Olympus TG-4 16 MP Waterproof Digital Camera.  I think the Olympus takes better underwater pictures than the Lumix, but the buttons stopped working for me a week after I bought it.
