If you can get yourself to the shoreline...

On December 13-14, 2016 there will be extremely high and low tides known as King Tides. The high tides show us what sea level rise looks like in real time. The low tides show us a whole world usually hidden by water. The low tides are quiet and stunning. They are an absence that open minds and ears and eyes.

Somewhere between 60-70 people converged on the beach at Point Pinole on Sunday, December 11 to explore. The talented Alison Young from California Academy of Sciences demonstrated the coolness of iNaturalist and answered a billion questions about the animals we found out there in the mud. Her timelapse camera captured this:

My big thanks to Alison for coming out and all that she does to connect people to the wonders of nature.

If you can get yourself to the shoreline over the next few days, particularly in the late afternoon before sunset, I recommend it. It's peaceful in a really important way.
