A negative two foot tide is a positive for us. All sorts of interesting sea creatures, typically blissfully covered with water and sea grass, were exposed. We spent at least two hours exploring/playing. The highlights were the lobsters, the sea hare, and the bright red kelp crab whose intense color perfectly matched his personality. Angry. He was missing a claw but used his front leg as a faux claw, attempting to trick his enemy (me) into submission. There is never a dull moment in the intertidal zone.
