Happy Little Cottages By The Sea

Cottage Charm, Coastal Calm

A lazy day on the dock watching the tide roll out

I love the salt marsh. I love how the colors change with the seasons. I love hoe the pluff mud ( marsh mud) smells in low tide. I love how the birds and the fish and the fiddler crabs and the other marsh creatures live and eat and love the marsh like I do. The tides here on Tybee are some of the highest on the Eastern Seaboard and the tides in the salt Marsh rise and fall to dramatic levels. When it’s low, the bottom is one big mud flat. You can actually watch the tides go down if you sit long enough!

We finally had a taste of Spring today with the sun and the blue skies and the warm breeze. We literally just out on the end of Bobby and Suzanne’s dock and watched all the marsh activity which included watching the tides. Victor and Fran, our snowbird friends from Michigan and Sista Jean from West Virginia joined mom and I for our afternoon. I wish all of you could have been there with us to just relax and enjoy this beautiful scene.
