We check the tide charts each day for low tide,
and then we head to the beach about an hour or two before low tide.
By then, the tide is just beginning to recede,
leaving all kinds of treasures to be discovered and admired.
But the most interesting thing we discovered this time,
was a baby octopus, who hid in a pen shell when the low tide trapped him in a tidal pool.
Ewwww! He inked me!
