Here’s how this trip came together. I’ve been watching the weather at certain locations and in this case, the tides on the coast. The tide tables… http://tides.mobilegeographics.com/locations/3230.html indicated an unusually low tide this last weekend. NOAA weather said it was going to be mostly clear and warm. I had the chance to rent a new lens I’ve been wanting to try out, so its on. Its about four hours out to the coast and dont underestimate the additional 14 miles plus hiking once you’ve left 101.
