Low Tide at Sunset Cliffs, January 2009

Aside from the beautiful full moon we had last week there was a very low tide over the weekend. I’m sure they’re somehow related but don’t ask me how… Frank and I took a hike on the beach south from the staircase at the foot of Ladera St. We didn’t get far before the batteries in my camera and the backups were dead, but we had a great hike and watched the sunset from the beach before making our way back up. I was happy to get these great photos of the low tide from our good friend Jeff.

Thanks for posting Jeff’s photos, Patty. This was indeed an unusually low low tide (-1.8ft @ 15:40 on 1/11). The Dive Bums calendar shows the only lower tide this year was the day before (-1.9ft @ 15:59 on 1/10). Next lowest isn’t until December 31st! (-1.7ft @ 15:13 on 12/31)
