Low Tide

The tide has been very low this past few days. At noon on Monday I was driving across the Courtney Campbell Causeway (from Clearwater to Tampa) and stopped to take a few pictures. There were a handful of birds braving the wind. They were out on the sand looking for food. There weren't too many fisherman since there was not a lot of water close to the road. It will probably stay this way during the day for a month or two.
