    Low-low tide at Lincoln Park was amazing today! We saw a few octopus, a few starfish, a couple types of crabs, tiny shrimp, anemones. Everyone was having a wonderful time. The octopi were a huge hit with all the kids.

    Side note; everywhere we went today people were so friendly, it felt like the sunshine really brought out the best of Seattle today.

Sorry, comment time is over.
