I am upset that I really didn't (couldn't) take advantage of this month's good tides. I was busy on some desk work. But I got a walk or two. The spring tides (or also called moon tides) are special. They drain the bay, they flood the bay, they allow you to explore places never seen before. They allow some of us to access shellfish that are usually under water. They create a landscape that is kind of freaky. And this only lasts an hour or so.
Watching the bay drain out is one of life's best experiences.
