Low-Tide Beach Walk, December 28, 2016 - Alice Mestemacher and Ron Bobb hosted a group of friends on a low-tide beach walk from Rio Del Mar to Capitola and back again. Since low tide was forecast to be at 1627, we started from Rio Del Mar at almost 1515, which had us returning in almost complete darkness but for the light of an occasional headlight. Temperatures were moderate in the afternoon sun, but cooled significantly after sunset.
Although we had had some decent rain storms come through earlier in the month, most of the streams that flow naturally over the beach into the ocean between Seacliff and New Brighton had gone underground. The beach appeared to have less sand than last year, the high tide mark falling near the upper side of the beach.
After we returned to Rio Del Mar we retired to Dharma's for a hearty meal.
