Since I hadn't been at the coast long when I came across this scene I was shocked and a little concerned .. I started thinking about the global warming "stuff" but then realized that with global warming the water level was supposed to rise not drop!
Go ahead and say it (I already did) "what a newbie!". Yep .. this was just low tide in all its glory. Had a nice chuckle and then snapped a few pics before the water came back. :-)
