Down by the sea
Not coincidentally, we are having some amazingly low tides this week in Puget Sound. Today, Wyatt and I met up with our friends Jenny (trained as a biologist) and her daughter, Sophia, (currently a chatter box) to see what we could find on an exposed sand bar during a low -3.4 tide at Golden Gardens Park.
In case you would like to venture into the normally-under-water sea floor yourself, I'd encourage you to hit a local beach during one of the remaining low tides. On many beaches around Seattle you will find volunteer beach naturalists sponsored by the Seattle Aquarium who are there to help you learn about what you find and answer questions. Here's a list of the remaining low tides this week: Tuesday Low 1:12 PM (-3.3); Wednesday Low 2:01 PM (-2.7);
Thursday Low 2:52 PM (-1.8).
