It is a simple but great thought, that when we visit the seashore area, we are visiting a place the creatures have

to survive in. So for them it is not a place of prettyness or rest and peacefulness, it is where they live and so have to strive to survive.
There, feel better now

As well as each other to contend with, the actual shore is a tricky place to be able to survive all year round. The wave action and the air/water

changes due to tides are a couple of serious adaptations that need to be overcome.
Temperature changes are another thing to consider... Ive seen beadlet

anemones in the summer exposed to the summer sun and Ive seen them in the winter exposed to wind chill of 'very cold!' (didnt measure it), but I had full clothes and

hat on and was freezing... the anemone was just the same (seemingly)
