The intertidal zone is the area along a coastline that is #underwater at high tide and above the water at low tide. Life in the #intertidal zone needs to be able to survive extreme conditions - both above the water and below. When the tide is low, living things are out of the water and they can be exposed to heat and bright sunlight. When the tide is high living things can be pounded by waves.
Conditions are more like living on land for creatures in the upper part of the intertidal, which is only covered with water at extreme high tide. Conditions are more like living in the ocean for creatures in the lower part of the intertidal which is only exposed to air at extreme low tide.  Some plants, animals, and algae are better adapted to living in the upper intertidal, while others are better adapted to living in the lower intertidal.
.
On rocky coastlines, there are often many types of algae and small snails that eat the algae. Animals that attach to the rocks such as #barnacles and mussels can be common. #Sea urchins and sponges live in areas that are usually covered with water. There are sometimes small pools of #water between rocks that remain even after the #tide goes out. These are called tide pools and they are often filled with many different animals, plants, and algae.

#Scientists have discovered that #blue spaces like an #Ocean - #River or #Lake can de-stress your #mind and #relax your body, boosting your #wellbeing in many aspects ..
.
People who take a plunge even benefit more than people who don't. #Freedivers are experiencing the benefits of blue spaces the most. Their deep #dive forces them to trip into a deep #journey of #meditation accessing the #masterswitch of life, a different level of #perception ..
.
The research focused on subjects who live in the urbanized white noise, in man made structures, consuming man made flavors ..
.
Our connection with #water is #mystical and #therapeutic in many ways, it starts from the moment we are in our mother's womb. The #amniotic fluid in which we were all once a part of is similar to the salty nature of the Ocean, thus our connection with water.

A "Marbled Crab" sneaking into our #water villa back in the #Maldives . The Marbled #Crab is the dark brown crab with yellow lines on the back as seen here in this picture. These creatures can be very shy, and would hide as soon you start moving. When colors are stripped out of its surroundings, we start seeing an almost #alien like looking creature, it's weirdly beautiful ..
#🦀
There are 47 different #species of crabs in the Maldives. Some crabs live in the water, some on land but many live on the #beach burrow-ing holes in the #sand by the #waterline ..

The branch or mound that we often call “a coral” is actually made up of thousands of tiny animals called polyps. A #coral polyp is an invertebrate that can be no bigger than a pinhead to up to 30 centimeters (1 foot) in diameter.

These lovely tiny #corals were spotted by us in Khasab's #port abandoned rocky slippery stairs, which was used for fishermen to refill their 2 stroke engines with a mixture of fuel and oil. This refilling station is now closed and a new port that is dedicated for fishermen, and tourism has opened on the opposite shoreline. What is intriguing in this finding is how well corals in the #Musandam peninsula are adapting to humans, and their commercial monetization of the lands around them, moreover increasing #ocean temperatures and hot weather hasn't deterred these wonderful creatures from appearing in probably the most polluted location in Musandam.
