Tidepool Weekend

Ok, all you tidepool lovers, we're due for another set of negative tides this weekend. They will range from -1.3 on Friday to -1.7 on Sunday, again right in the middle of the afternoon. You can expect the tide to be very low one hour before and one hour after the times given below.
02/06/2009 Fri 01:29PM LST -1.3 L
02/07/2009 Sat 02:08PM LST -1.6 L
02/08/2009 Sun 02:46PM LST -1.7 L
02/09/2009 Mon 03:21PM LST -1.5 L
Unfortunately, the weather may not be so cooperative this time as we are due for some rain. If we are lucky, Sunday and Monday afternoons may be clear. It will be much colder, too, with a high of 56 to 60 degrees predicted in that time period. But we need the rain, so I'm not complaining too much.

I have to work Friday and Saturday, so I will probably try to go out on Sunday. If you decide to do some tidepooling this weekend, dress warm, be kind to the animals, take lots of pictures, and be sure to share them with me when you get back. See you at the cove!

  1. I am so excited for the low tides! I've even written it on my calendar. People keep trying to get me to do other things this weekend, but I have to say sorry, I can't; its negative tide!

  2. very excited! planning on tomorrow, regardless of weather! thanks so much for posting this.

  3. We went on Saturday. It was great! We saw sea hares and bat stars, as well as the creatures we saw last time, just more of them. Very fun day.
