Ah, memories of Low Tide Fest..... What a wonderful event! It happened right around this time of year, too.
Low Tide Fest was an annual PTMSC thank you to the community and celebration of everything we value about our marine environment—the beach, the water and the creatures that live on, in or nearby.
We had low tide walks, classes and astounding presentations, music and entertainment, crafts and activities for children, teens and us bigger kids. We had the original community, the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, tell their stories and bring an oceangoing canoe for rides (tippy and exhilarating!). We had a wonderful musical family (the Cadorettes) sing their ode to Echinodermata—sea stars, sea cucumbers, sea urchins and their cousins. Who knew there would be so many choruses?
Most of all we had fun! But above and beyond all the activities and enjoyment, the Marine Science Center volunteers worked long and hard; and those long hours of working together with the amazing PTMSC family are my most treasured memories.
