Yesterday I went on a little adventure with my kayak. It was a familiar place to kayak but not familiar to me at low tide.
I kayaked from Hadley’s Point to the Twinnies. The Twinnies are two islands that are connected by a sand bar at low tide. I had not been there in a long time and not sure I had ever been there at this low of a tide so I landed my kayak to proceed to walk to both islands. The far island past my boat is South Twinnie.
This is the sand bar side of North Twinnie. As I kayaked around the side of it I realized it had a building on it. I will have to find out what that is all about from a park friend.
A neat rock and blooming plant on North Twinnie.
So as I took photos of rocks and looked around and ate a snack only a few minutes had passed but the tide was rising and my boat began to drift.
If you look past the kayak you will see in the right photo there is a sand bar and in the left photo there is no sand bar. I realize now from my photos just as I walked to the island the tide was almost taking my boat. I had pulled it further up the beach than what I see in the photo. The transition only took a few minutes. The photo on the left the boat is pulled up further on the beach after my rescue and realizing the tidal flow was rapid. I had to run across the beach and into the water up to my thighs to grab the kayak. It was surreal when I first saw it drifting away.
A neat rock at the bottom of photo for both of my rock hound friends. Also a really neat
plant at the top of the photo that lives underwater at higher tide.
