|Beavertail ~ Rocky Shore|
Virtual Field Trip
The first thing we notice as we are getting off the bus is how windy it is at Beavertail; good thing the teacher said to bring a jacket. The air seems damp and smells like salt water and seaweed. We are up pretty high on a rocky cliff, and see far out into the ocean. On foggy days, we've heard that you can't even see to the end of the rocks. We knew this was a Rocky Shore, not a Sandy Shore, but we were still surprised that there is no sandy beach here. People lay out on the rocks and wade in the tide pools. You can swim in the water, but the waves crash really hard against the rocks and it can be dangerous. Some rocks are high, some are sharp and could cut you, and some are very slippery. We proceed with caution as we walk towards the lighthouse.
