Low tides on Vancouver Island

Remarkable to see the low tides this morning and pools teeming with life. Of course our local Herons are taking full advantage. Three of the lowest tides in Victoria are expected to be seen over the next three months, during a series of three supermoons. The dates are predicted on June 15, July 13 and Aug. 11.

Please practice good nature etiquette while out and about. No need to plunder and scoop all the tiny creatures as I seen many small children doing this morning while parents looked on.  I always consider first how much is any photograph or experience worth? Do not love the outdoors to death and destruction.

“Steinbeck wrote about the tide pools and how profoundly they illustrate the interconnectedness of all things, folded together in an ever-expanding universe that’s bound by the elastic string of time. He said that one should look from the tide pool to the stars, and then back again in wonder.”
