A late spring low tide on Puget Sound - if you don't dry out waiting for the sea level to rise again, you will surely be trampled by the curious urban horde. Or carried away in a plastic bag or a 5-gallon bucket. This was a family excursion to Seahurst on a beautiful Memorial Day during a -3.8' tide. The broad sandy terrace puts the narrow gravel foreshores in perspective. I was impressed by the broad bar offshore of the northern section of the park - covered in eelgrass, which was in turn covered in ulva.
As is always the case - high tide or low - the stream mouth was filled with small anadramous children.
