The Highest Tide was recommended by the owner of our downtown bookstore. Jim Lynch lives in Olympia and The Highest Tide is his first novel. Loved it. Miles O'Malley is a young teenager obsessed with the tidal flats around Olympia and has a crush on the naturalist Rachel Carson. The novel follows Miles and the tides during one amazing summer.
I really don't know much about South Puget Sound. We were at the farmer's market last week and I picked up a handout from the South Sound Estuary Association that lists summer dates for low tide explorations with naturalists. Yes, please. Perfect timing.
Our farmer's market in Olympia is open again for the summer. We have the best farmer's market. Really. And Nikki McClure, another local author, just published a picture book, To Market, To Market, on our farmer's market in Olympia. It is fabulous.
