When we first went out to Tidal Falls the water was calmly coming in. Have I mentioned how awesome the tides are Maine? The water washes in and out every twelve hours and I don’t just mean a foot or two - it goes way out, and comes way back in. I found it very interesting that the water was always moving!
We did an earthcache at this point - GCQ7YK for you geocachers out there, the cache page gives more information about the hows and whys and a link to the tidal charts.
I just find it amazing that so much life still manages with the inconsistencies in the water. This seaweed stuff (sorry have no clue what it is) just lays around on the rocks without water - I can only assume the bulbous tips help them survive while on land.
Then as the water comes in they become afloat with potential eating places for various critters.
My husband thinks he king of the hill - or rocks in this case. Silly man!
As far as we can remember, it was our first time seeing the Atlantic Ocean so we had to do a self-portrait.
The puddles left from low tide provide viewing of many small creatures.
Peace out dude!
We became shadow art momentarily.
I wanted to take a piece of driftwood home but the guys wouldn’t allow it.
When we stopped back by later in the day it was amusing to see the birds trying to stay on rocks while the tide was roughly going back out.
