This week we also had a Saturday workday! It was supposed to be and Aunty Donnie day but it didn't work out. (I hope her kupuna gets well soon!) When we arrived (~9am), the tide was pretty low so I checked the tide calendar. Each day has two low tides and two high tides. The lowest of the low tides or as I call it low low tide was ~8am and the the highest of the high tides (high high tide) would be ~3pm. At first I thought this to be bad but as it turns out it was a very wondrous thing! Again we split into two teams each taking four plots each (the last eight plots!). This time I was with Sam and Aukai. Saturday was hot and sunny (got sunburned) but fun. I admit that our group was a little slow because I got distracted by taking macro pictures with the camera.
On the way out of the pond, the tide was rising which led to the makeshift wall becoming a sort of waterfall/standing wave. It was nawts (excuse my spelling). One of the coolest things I have ever seen. I didn't think that the incoming water would produce such a strong current. I could walk straight because it was so strong.
