  1. does anyone know are there more king tides coming up? would love to go for a low tide late night walk

    Tonight is tempting, but I have to get up early tomorrow. I'd love to have someone to go with sometime. I live near Admiral and 57th not to far from Alki.

  2. The Envinomental Science Center is having an event tomorrow night.

    I enjoyed the beach walk I went on with them. The volunteers know their stuff!

  3. We've been writing about them on the main page ... including mentioning the lows and highs in our daily previews (West Seattle Monday, West Seattle Tuesday, etc., published each morning), also tweeted last night from a late-night walk.

    here's the overview:

    here's our favorite tide chart:

    Son and I were out last night for the second-lowest low tide. Tonight is the VERY lowest - 10:41 pm, -3.6 feet.

    The highest high tides are Saturday morning at 6:50 am and Sunday morning at 7:34 am, both 13 feet.

  4. Bring a light and good shoes. Otherwise wait until May/June for the greatest low tide in the day time.
