Time and Tide at Popham Beach

Popham Beach, Maine
Last time we were at Popham Beach in the spring, we couldn't walk out to the Fox Islands because of the change in the tides and the direction of the river. What a difference a few months will make! Today we were able to get out to the islands again at low tide although it looked like it might now be difficult to get around to the beach at the western end of the parking area. (See photo above for the view from the island back to the beach.)

While standing on top of the island, we noticed it looked like it was now possible to walk out to the island at the mouth of the Kennebec. But, we didn't have time to walk all the way down there to verify that. We could see a couple of people walking out that way but don't know how far they could get.

We'll save that bit of exploration up for later on in the month.
