Wednesday evening

Atlantic coast during low tide. On the horizon distant lights of the Espinho coast city can be seen.

A late afternoon stroll on the beach somewhere between Granja and Espinho ( Portuguese Atlantic coast ). The low tide reveals strange rocky formation. The low tide-high tide amplitude can reach as much as 4 meters. Although we have been living by the cost and seeing tides for more than 11 years, predicting the exact time of low and high tide can be tricky. It depends on ever varying Earth–Sun and Earth–Moon distances, coastal line, sea depth ect. Location: Granja, Portugal Coast.
