#224: Tide Pool Adventures

It's not often when the lowest tide of the month occurs on a weekend afternoon, but this weekend we're in luck. The low tide this Saturday and Sunday is -1.4 ft and occurs at 2:30 and 3 pm. Perfect!

Check out this handy tide chart for more details.

Point Dume in Malibu (#46) is a beautiful place to explore tide pools. These pictures are from our trip to Point Dume in November when the tide was at -1.4 ft. We saw starfish, limpets, anemones and hermit crabs galore.
At low tide we could see the exposed sea grass. Beautiful!

  1. I enjoyed the tide pools. Stay dry anyone who attempts a sea crossing and keep your significant other close.
