Do you have any Low Tide?

  On Saturday we drove out to Honeymoon Island to catch the sunset.  As we drove out along the causeway we could tell that it was a very low tide, when we got to the beach we were amazed at how low it really was.  We parked at the North end of the Main Beach, which we knew had a sand bar.  Everyone I talked to on the beach said it was the lowest they had ever seen.  It turned out to be a Negative Low Tide and it  uncovered lots of creatures, most of which I had never seen live before.  Usually the whole area pictured it covered in water…
