Is that high and low or high & really high
Not only is the high tide striking but also the dense forest on the hillside in the background. Arcata is truly a wild place. I'm thinking, too, of the huge flocks of waterbirds who find refuge in Arcata. Just looking at your photos brings me to that part of me that is always walking somewhere in Humboldt County. They touch that wild place in my heart.
Bill-- Good question. The first photo is probably more like a 4 ft tide because it was midway between high and low tide, and the low was expected to be 3 ft about three hours later. The second photo is a really high tide, but higher ones are expected in the next two months. They'll get up to 9 ft. If it coincides with any significant rains, uh-oh.am-- I can't tell you how much we love living here. Everyday (literally) I tell Roger I love it here. It's a wonderful place. I really sense how much you love it here too.
Hi Robin!Really nice photos! Even better when enlarged. It seems like you have settled into your new surroundings. Hope you guys are doing well...
Simple is sometimes the best of all.
Hi Pat!-- We are very happy here. Love the north coast! So good to hear from you.NCmountainwoman-- Pictures tell a thousand words.
Never thought about tides, that much. Cool that you posted the pictures. That area is beautiful. It looks quiet, too. Nice!
oldwhitelady-- It is quiet here and very beautiful. More than 300 bird species have been sighted here. Glad you liked the photos.
