The tide

The tide is pretty grand here. Here's our beach at high tide:

And here's our beach at low tide:

Yesterday we went down to the southern tip of the island and found a huge tidal area. Some of it was covered in teeny tiny crabs, but mostly it was just huge and flat. This pictures is taken from about half way across looking north. You can see the grass on the dunes where high tide reaches.

And from the same spot, looking south:

We saw some gray gulls (much bigger than the regular gulls) an osprey, and some swallows. It was really cool
