A Walk at Low Tide

Another sign of spring around here? Low tide. And I mean looowww tide. A tide so low I could practically walk to the general store from our house (which is located across the bay from us).

It gives us a much larger front yard to explore.

The rocky island in the middle of the bay (frequented by ducks and gulls) is reachable during low tide. Unfortunately, it’s covered with bird poop and fish guts and it’s the worst-smelling place in the world.

View’s pretty though.

Crabs under every rock you flip over! And we have young neighbours you like to flip over those rocks! We disrupted a few crab parties.
