Family fun: Explore Low Tide this weekend!

Friday


Exploring low tide is one of our favorite family activities with the added bonus of learning! I wrote a more complete blog post back in July if you'd like to take a look:

This weekend is one of the best 2 days for exploring in Washington State this month because the low tide time of day is realistic for weekend exploring.



Simple tip:
If you want to have a great day exploring low tide, take a look at your local areas tidal charts and try to find a day where the 'L' number is as close to zero or -0. Low tide occurs twice a day. Reviewing the tidal chart will help you find a time of day that's realistic for your family adventure.
