Low tide

The shoreline takes on a different look when the tide goes out. And when it’s a minus tide, it’s even more interesting. These shots were taken in Raymond along the lower reaches of the Willapa River and on the Pacific Coast at North Cove. As always on this blog, you can click on a photo to see a larger version of it. Enjoy!

Recent storms uncovered a wooden shipwreck in a sand dune on Washaway Beach, Washington. Identification of the vessel has not been made, but it’s likely been buried here a long time, since it had trees growing over it! The steady erosion along the shore at North Cove has claimed a lighthouse, roads and dozens of houses. What else lies hidden beneath the sands?
