Going out with the tide

Over the next four days (Wednesday through Saturday), we’ll see the lowest tides of the summer (yes, we’re aware summer technically is still about a week away) — all -3 feet or lower, with the absolute lowest a -3.8 on Friday morning (check the full tide chart here). Seattle Aquarium beach naturalists will be out on Friday (and over the weekend) at Lincoln Park and south of Alki Point; one of our favorite low-tide spots is Lowman Beach, one of the areas where submerged structures start to emerge, as seen this morning:

    Where is Lowman Beach?

    It’s at the south end of Beach Drive, just north of Lincoln Park (there’s actually a small stretch of waterfront houses between Lowman and Lincoln). Wonderful small waterfront park with a swing and a tennis court and a couple of huge old trees, in addition of course to the beach.

    We have some interesting low tide spots here in Southern Oregon around Harris Beach.

    This should be an intersting time to explore for those who have time and access.

    I’ve seen those structures at Lowman at low tide and wondered what they were? Anybody know?

    I am pretty sure the structures had something to do with sewer outflow. Back before it was treated.

Sorry, comment time is over.
