When the moon has to compete with smoke from recent fires in the region and the Staircase to the Moon phenomenon fizzles, there’s still the Town Beach night markets to entertain.
Yesterday we were pretty much convinced that the wind would knot (sic) allow us to get out on a boat to see the outgoing tidal action in King Sound and over Talon Reef. Happily, a short window in the weather opened up and we were able to witness the incredible forces of these 6 hourly tides. It was late in the afternoon and the tides were going out.
After a couple of smoky days, this salt water spray and sunset interlude full of giant whirlpools and waterfalls in the ocean was a great way to complete our visit to Cape Leveque. That, and the dinner we enjoyed afterwards.
