I love a long walk on the beach. Watching the waves as they spill onto the beach during a tide change can be so peaceful and then seeing them as a storm rolls is so different.
One of my favorite times to go to the beach is during a low tide.
When Nick brought Greta to Seattle for her first visit it was the week of low tides in May. We took her to the beach by the Vashon ferry dock. She had never seen a sea star, anemones or baby crabs running when you picked up their rocky hiding place. It was great fun sharing our 'this is just a day at low tide' experience that we had had so often. I loved watching her as she experienced something for the first time . It was so much fun sharing this experience with someone who had never been to a low tide on a beach.
This next week we will all have a chance to experience the low tides during the day. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be some of our lowest tides of the year. The weather looks pleasant for a nice walk at the beach. It is a perfect way to explore the natural beauty of the beach and teach your child how to respect living creatures as they get to see what lives in the salt water.
I hope you have a chance to go.
