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.
