Low tide at 4 pm – let’s head for Tahiti Beach.
With a full moon, it’s a low, low tide. When Tahiti Beach bares all.
A super long sand bar (above) and a huge basin of sand (below) that’s usually covered with water. Lots to explore.
Here’s a green sea star.
Closely related to sea urchins and sand dollars, sea stars are only found in salt water and can regenerate lost limbs. Here’s a sea urchin shell.
And a live whelk.
Here is a live sea biscuit.
The dead ones are pure white. Sunrise tellin’ is the name of this colorful shell.
Lots of baby conch. These are underwater, but the water is so translucent —
This one has little snail-like creatures attached.
Here they are on sea grass.
Royal terns are graceful water birds.
We love wandering Tahiti Beach at low tide.
