SkyWatch Friday ~ Low tides and dramatic skies

  This weeks new moon has brought low morning tides and a weather system out of the southwest has given us dramatic skies.

Intertidal at the edge of the low tide.
On an extreme low tide the tide will go out over a km, on our beach it is about 1/2 a km.
Yesterday the weather was more menacing than trouble.

Low tide seems like a great time to walk the beach pebbles especially if the threatening sky does open up.

The low tide leaves a lot of beach to explore. The skies and sea are always beautiful. Love the photos.

Yes, we are so lucky to be near a beach - I am just about to take Freida out to ours. It is windy but so long as we are well wrapped up it will be very refreshing!

I love to explore during low tides. I remember in San Felipe Mexico they had huge tide changes. You could walk out on the sand beach for almost a mile it seemed. One of the amazing things I remember were the deep depressions where sharks rested on the bottom at high tide. - Margy
