This concludes theoutershores’ sixth year. I wrote 26 posts, including this one, and uploaded a bunch of images from the Oregon coast. I even added a few images from Orcas Island, one of the San Juan Islands, in the Salish Sea. I added photos of new species to my pages on flowering plants, red and brown algae, and I started a new chiton page. Here I highlight the three most viewed posts from 2018, and a few favorite photos.
