Around 5:00pm each night, something really cool happened with the tide. Where the gulf was once waist deep (on adults), the water would become really shallow. It sort of looked like a huge sandbar that you could walk on into the middle of the gulf.
This would only happen for a couple of hours in the evening, then the water would slowly come up again like normal. I’m not a tide expert, so I’m not going to try to tell you how or why this happens, but it was really fun to play in. This was one of my favorite parts of our trip!
