365 Nature – Day 244
In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Learn more about the project and see all the 365 Nature posts.
During our school break I had intended to visit Alki Beach. We had last visited on Day 187 and although the tides aren’t anywhere near as low we wanted to still get out and explore. Today was the lowest tide of the break at a 0 and we met my daughter’s school friend there for exploring. Unfortunately before we’d flipped more than a couple of rocks, the rain came drenching everyone. The girls continued to play in the waves and sand, but I stashed my camera away to keep it dry and ended up taking few photos. We did manage to find tube worms, a few sea stars, hermit crabs, shore crabs and many sea anemones before the rain came.
She is currently writing a book about urban nature to be published by Mountaineers Books in 2019.
