This week we have had some very low tides. The only water visible in the bay in the picture up top is the water from creeks feeding it. The Oregonian had an article yesterday about the low tides - tis worth the read and I am looking forward to the even lower low tides in late June.
Sunny but breezy today. High was 77 but with gusts of 10 from the northwest, it felt chilly. Have started the fire in the stove to chase the chill (in addition to putting on a long sleeved shirt). A day spent not much but yet one wherein I felt like I got a lot done.
Tomorrow, I'm heading into town to pick up planter boxes, dirt, and other supplies. I'll leave the heavy stuff in the car for Saturday girls - the two teens I rent each Saturday do all the heavy lifting for me - bringing up wood along with household chores I have difficulty doing. The nursery plants seem to be acclimating well and I hope to plant them Saturday afternoon or Sunday.
