    • Thanks Kelly, I am rather fond of them. We have several living in the bay, below the house. At really low tides we find little ones under the rocks. It is amazing how they change colour and shoot ink. They are hard to untangle if one gets a hold of your fingers.

      • LOL we have all manner of fun critters, like sea cucumbers and bat stars and jelly fish and bull heads and moon snails. Come for a visit at low tide some day… πŸ™‚

  1. It’s there song. Written just for the splendid, clever, many tentacled darling of the ocean. In his very own Beatle’s song “octopuses garden in the sea “. What is not too love about this amazing creature.
