PHOTOS: King Tide Visits Burien’s Seahurst Park
This weekend marks the return of unusually high tides to the Washington coastline, including Burien’s own Seahurst Park.
These tides are called “king tides” and they happen during the winter months when the Earth is closest to the Sun.
This morning’s high tide was a 13.2 — high enough to obscure nearly all of the beach at Seahurst Park at its peak.
If you missed today’s high tide, you have another chance Sunday morning just after 9 a.m. with a 13.1 tide forecast.
BTB photog Michael Brunk was at Seahurst Park this morning and captured the following gallery of images. You can click the image above or the thumbnails below to view high-resolution photos.
