I've decided that my Photo o' Jour posts will happen only on days I go to work, so I won't be updating on the weekends, holidays, or when I'm on vacation.*

Today's photo comes from Rialto Beach on the Washington Coast. I went over there to do a little camping, and there was a log washed up on the shore that hundreds of these mussels on the underside. They had pure white shells with a touch of orange, and were totally awesome looking. What really intrigued me was the huge feet they had. With feet that large, I couldn't see them protecting themselves very well. I have no idea what these things are, but if you know, please let me know.

Tomorrow: pictures from Seattle's Folklife festival.
