Tides will be lower than usual along the Oregon and Washington coasts for the next few days
, as much as minus three feet, which will not only make for great clam digging, it will expose points of interest not often seen.

The wreck of the Bettie M, a Tuna seiner wrecked near Cape Disappointment in 1976, will be visible.

During extreme low tides like this, it was recently possible to view the remains of the Admiral Benson as well as the Alice just north of Ocean Park.
