St Jago
Collected a great number of curious and beautiful animals from the little pools left by the tide. The colours of the sponges and corallines are extremely vivid and it is curious how all animated nature becomes more gaudy as it approaches the hotter countrys. Birds, fishes, plants, shells are familiar to every one, but the colours in these marine animals will rival in brilliancy those of the higher classes.
