The Lowest Tide in Ten Years

Thursday, June 5th was the lowest ocean tide in ten years. Technically we went to the ocean on Friday the 6th, but the tide was almost as low. With such a low tide places that have rarely been above water were and creatures who had never seen direct sunlight were visable to the naked eye. We tide pooled at Neptune State Park.
After we went to the beach we visited Sea Lion Caves (a tourist attraction). It is the largest natural sea cave in the world. Stellar Sea lions rest in it.

This cave was on the beach and is not sea lion cave, but it is a few miles away.
