I have lived within a few miles of the Atlantic Ocean for most of my life. A dock connects our back yard to a tidal creek.
At low tide, there’s just a trickle of water in the creek.
During the low tide, wading birds walk along the creek bed searching for food.
When the tide is high, it’s a different world.
At the mouth of the creek we enter a river and explore the coastal waters.
And during the summer, when the tide is just right, we can catch fresh blue crabs for supper.
