Here’s a brief look back at theoutershores’ fifth year. I wrote 27 short posts and uploaded my share of Oregon coast images. I added new photos and updated most theoutershores’ pages, like the ones on reds and browns, and opened up new pages on sponges, sea anemones, and jellies. Here, I highlight the three most viewed posts I wrote in 2017, and show off a few of my favorite photos from the year.
A selection of photos from 2017 posts:

Hemigrapsus nudus, wandering out on the sand
Look for woody stipe with Y-branches
Corallines and chitons layer the lower intertidal
