Description

Years ago, when my children were small, a favourite place to visit was the rock pools at Flat Rock, near Ballina. We would spend time looking closely at the marvellous tiny worlds that existed there, and many secrets were revealed, if we were patient....tiny octopi, molluscs on the move, beautiful seaweeds, little bright fish, sometimes starfish, and always cunjovoi that squirted water. A beautiful thing to do was to watch as the tide flowed into these little worlds, refreshing them again. Often the light was so bright that creatures couldn't be seen properly. This is what I'm capturing here....a glimpse of another world; the essence of it, as the light skips on the water inviting closer observation. A few impressions of the dark and red cunjovoi (sea squirts) are alluded to as well. These are evocative memories for me, of a wonderful time, now passed.
