Thank you for all of your kind comments.

The tide made it to a record low at -1.40 feet, on November 14th, the day after a New Moon. I was so excited to be on the beach, in the moment. I was running around with my camera and tripod, trying to get as many POV's as I possibly could!!!!

Take care all!!! Happy Holidays!!!!!
