Barnacle Bill...

Barnacles are in all coastal ecosystems. In a low tide you will see blankets of these fellows on every rock. They also attach themselves to docks and bottoms of boats, here the fellows are trying to remove them.
The Barnacles are an important link in the food chain, one of their predators are the 'Starfish'
We enjoyed seeing some of the natural ocean life along the shores of all of the provinces we visited, will show more in another post.


  1. That's interesting! Love the Starfish.

  2. Good post, and nice shot of the Starfish!

  3. Phew - it's been a while since I was here visiting your blog - lots to catch up on. Beautiful trip you're on and brings back memories of the places I've seen. My wife and I visited Cape Breton Island and Peggy's Cove 4 years ago - wonderful places. I've also seen PEI (way before the bridge was built !) - beautiful.

    Lovely photos - thanks for taking us along on the tour!

  4. Thanks so much for the nice comments, and Rick you are very welcome !! I am enjoying showing and reliving our holiday !! :)

  5. Thanks for visiting, Chastity, and appreciate your comments !!
