One of the Lowest Low tides of the Year















It was that last night, there's another low tide Sat afternoon around 5pm, and prior that one of the highest tides of the year about 11am.
The photo above shows the area beside Rocks Rd, a km or two north of Tahuna Beach.
Its not hard to imagine those old seafarers not looking forward to entering Nelson Haven.
Thats the whole reason they used dynamite to blow a "Cut" in the Boulder Bank to allow shipping a safer passage into Port Nelson.
