SBBM & King Tides

I haven’t visited Moss Beach in a while so I thought what better timing than to go during the Supermoon with a -1.3ft negative tide. Unfortunately, the ecosystem seems to have changed, the lack of tidepool sculpins, hermit crabs, and the total non-presence of starfish may be an indicator that the health of our oceans are deteriorating.
