Mile 207 Report
April 12, 2022
I have never seen a tiny octopus in the wild.
I have never seen a tiny octopus in the wild. As I was walking my mile and looking in the tidepools, something caught my eye. I thought maybe it was a tiny squid swimming in the tidepool, but it was a tiny octopus between 2-3 inches long with the most beautiful big black eyes. As I put my finger in the water to point out the octopus on my video and hoping it would latch on to me like in the enourmously popular Netflix feature, My Octopus Teacher, it changed colors to a darker maroon and shrunk up in size. I could sense it was scared. I pulled my finger back, a little disappointed it didn't latch on to form a bond with me. I observed it swim away at a rather relaxed pace to hide among the maroon colored kelp in the tide pool. It was amazing to see. I guess I was in the right place at the right time.
Number of people: 7. Number of dogs: 4.
