Tongue Point juts out into Juan de Fuca Strait west of Port Angeles. Photograph sea stars, anemones, urchins, varieties of kelp, sponges, & barnacles in the tide pools. Sunsets over the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Morning tidepool photography and group picnic lunch. (Opt) stay at Salt Creek Recreation Area campground the night before.
The group will meet at the kiosk by the entrance to Tongue Point at 8:00 AM. We will procede to the end of Tongue Point and work our way back as the tide comes in. It is recommeded to wear shoe/boot with good gripping soles, bring a black umbrella to shade the sky, polarizing filter, tripod, and cable release.
I'll be camping from Friday 6/21 to Sunday 6/23 in Campsite 56 . For those camping the weekend there will be optional photograghy activites in the area on Friday afternoon and Saturday. I do recommend making campsite reservations early. If the weather cooperates there may be incredible sunsets over the Strait.
