Low Tide.....totally.

Guess where I am? Ha ha..as if you have to guess.
Last week there was
THE ULTIMATE LOOOOOOW TIDE..
I mean, waaaay low..lower than Johnny Cashs voice low.
almost a -3..
wow, whats that?
It means a great reason to take the camera and the mini peeps and
go goof off at the beach..
wanna see?
Here is the jetty..
((A jetty is a structure extending into a body of water, which protects a harbor or coastline from the effects of currents and tides.))
just in case my mid-land state reader(s) didn't know exactly what that was..
its a great excuse to go check out the "bottom of the jetty" and all that lives there..


I took this goof off.. along with his oldest best-est cousin Miles..
Hi Miles!! see him back there in his yellow sweatshirt?
These other two tagged along, too.




Here is the bottom part of the jetty..covered in lots of cool stinky ocean smelling stuff.



up close and personal..they are noisy chattering bubbling bi-valves..








hello real alive star-fish..no its not Patrick from the Sponge Bob fame..
although that's what all my mini peeps were calling them.




This is a whole family of them..under a rock.















this is how far we could walk..a long long long long long way out..





















Hello Mr Crab, all nestled in your seaweed bed.











there you go.
another day in the life....
yawn..
what did you do today?
Happy almost 4Th~
