If you read our previous post, here's one we think Jeff Foxworthy forgot.
You know you're from the PNW if you keep a tide schedule on your fridge so you know when is the best time to go romp on the beach with your dog.
Today was a good day as you can see from this chart courtesy of ProTIDES. Low tide was at 10:20 a.m. and it was actually a minus tide -1'5". The sandbars went on and on. The winds were pretty strong so we saw kite flyers and also paragliders. We also tried our hand at using the video feature on our camera. Apparently our hands were not steady or talented enough, so we don't have a video of Diva Dog running on the sand for this post. Stay tuned -- maybe a post in the near future will have one. So for now we have more photos of our beautiful girl playing on the sand.
As Curmudgeon mentioned above, we had a negative low tide today, which revealed the lovely sand bars in the photos above. At higher tides, only the rocky parts of the beaches remain. If you look at the upper left corner of the picture, you can see a rock wall that separates the beach/waterfront from the train tracks. When we were here last week during high tide, the water was half way up the rock wall.
Besides the kite fliers and paragliders, we noticed a few fishermen, including this one.
