There is some 8,000 miles of coast line in Alaska, not counting all the islands.
I have lived on the coast most of my years here, and am now reconnecting with the tides.
Last night I took a stroll out on the tidelands south of town.
Some of you will recognize this scene, the sedge grasses and Kenai Mountains in the distance.
On the out tide it looks like you could walk to the mountains, but you can’t.
You can safely walk to about the edge of the vegetation and not much more.
Little treasures can be found, the glass fishing balls don’t get this far inland though.
