Super Moon - Super Low Tide

Last Sunday morning we got up very early
 and went up to Cayucos to see the lowest tide of the year.
Caused by the Super Moon - -7.3!!

 We saw areas of the beach that have always been under water.  

Margot captured these cool trails though the damp sand,

 and these really large sea anemones, using her iPhone.

Interestingly enough the beach was almost pristine, other than seaweed and a few jelly fish, very little to see and/or gather - I did pick up enough for this small vignette of beach life.


  1. Wow! That IS a low tide! The beach is always beautiful, isn't it?

  2. bobbie - It's one of my favourites - and what a kick to see so much of it!

  3. We LOVE tidepooling. I love the exhileration of standing out too far too long and then when the tide gets really close I scream like a girl.
