The year’s second set of highest high tides, and thus the second round of our King Tide Project, is coming up December 3-5.  Photographers can participate anywhere—photos documenting the highest reach of the highest tides at any point on the outer shoreline, the shores of estuaries, or along lower river floodplains are useful.  However, if you will be on the north coast and would like suggestions about good locations for good King Tide shots, along with some companionship, moral support (especially if it’s raining), and perhaps some last-minute instruction, we have an invitation for you. 

Fawn Custer, CoastWatch’s volunteer coordinator, and Melissa Keyser, coordinator of the Haystack Rock Awareness Program, will meet informally with King Tide volunteers at the Bald Eagle Coffee House in Cannon Beach (1064 S. Hemlock St.) on the first day of this King Tide Round, Sunday, Dec. 3. Wander in any time between 9:30-10:30 a.m. to enjoy coffee, tea, and baked goods (no host), and map out locations to photograph the highest reach of the tides, taking place shortly thereafter.  You can then head out singly or join up with others for teamwork.

High tide on Dec. 3 is at 10:54 a.m., so you will want to get there early enough to head out with enough time to get to your location by then.
