The “Captain Haddock” ran into trouble off Golden Gardens this morning.
The boat was caught in one of the lowest tides of the year. Jim, seen above, told us he left Port Hadlock yesterday for an overnight trip, but he didn’t expect the tide to go out so fast. The vessel ran aground.
He’s been stuck since 8 this morning, and as the tides came back in this afternoon, he’s hoping to be on his way.
With the second lowest tide of the year today (at -3.3 feet) — and the lowest tomorrow just before noon (at -3.4 feet) — beachcombers and naturalists have been exploring all the creatures on the beach.
