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.
