The Lowest of the Low

The low tide today was the lowest of the year, and the high tide the highest. That translates into sixteen feet of difference between the tide at noon and that at nine in the evening. We are anchored in Prideaux Haven, one of the rock-ringed coves in Desolation Sound. When we kayaked here at low tide today, we learned that the slabs of rock continue deep into the water, and are home to a host of sea creatures. The change in the landscape when the water drops sixteen feet is dramatic. Theses sketches
are of the rock that marks the entrance to this cove, at both high and low tide
