Riding the Elevator

We have spent the last several days at McMicken Island, and enjoying ourselves immensely -- see the last post!  

During our time here, we have had many ups and downs.  I call it Riding the Elevator.  Here in the south sound there can be a 16-foot change in water level between high and low tides.  We rode out the spring tides this week, where we experience the highest highs and the lowest lows.  

UP!  Taken at high tide the evening of June 3.

DOWN!  Low tide, early afternoon of June 4.  

I SHOULD have taken the high tide shot later that same evening, though it would have been too dark to show as well.  It was a 17.8-foot ride back up again!
