Record Tides


This weekend brought the highest tides of the year, flooding salt marshes and bringing horseshoe crabs ashore to spawn. The tide Sunday at 8 p.m. was 6.5 feet, reports Paul Earnshaw, president of the Buckeye Brook Coalition. This shot of a horseshoe crab was taken near Spot Park in Conimicut on the Sunday morning tide.
