It could have gone either way.......

 7:42 am - Sunday - April 4th - Seal Rock, OR - 45° F, 93% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north.....cloudy again today with a forecast high of 51° F.  On this date in 2012 we went fishing (trolling) with our good friend Ernie on his boat, and caught a good size mahi mahi.......↴



I've been procrastinating wrapping the air horns, spot light, and antennas in the shrink wrap, but decided it was time to stop doing that and get it done, so Saturday morning I got out our telescoping ladder and took care of the last chrome pieces needing protection from the elements.......

......shortly after finishing that long delayed task TLE and I headed down to Seal Rock Beach to see the super low tide.....



.....and visit the famous tide pools.  This is the lowest we have seen the tide....you could, if you wished on this day, walked out to, and climbed upon the rock formations for which this stretch of coast gets it name.  In fact, we saw several people doing just that.....


A nice pano of the rock formations at low tide






.....there were many sea anemones, and we actually found quite a few starfish.....



.....after about 45 minutes the wind began to come up increasing the chill factor, so we headed back up the hill to our home for the afternoon.  Why?  Well, the first game of the 'Final Four' was about to begin.....Houston (#2) vs. Baylor (#1), followed by UCLA (#11) vs. Gonzaga (#1).  The first game was over midway through the first half when Baylor went up by 19, ending the half up 45-20 over hapless Houston.  The final score had Baylor up by 19 points.  After this blowout I was just hoping for a competitive game between UCLA and Gonzaga, and that is what we got.  There were over 20 lead changes in the game with 13, or 14 ties.  Gonzaga led by one point at half time, and at the end of full time it was tied, so off we go to another overtime game.  With 57 seconds to go in the 5 minute overtime period UCLA led by one point, and then with 3.2 seconds to go the score was tied 82-82....we thought we were going to a second overtime period when the Gonzaga player (Suggs) launched a half court shot which banked in with no time left on the clock....what a stunning way to end what was one of the best 'Final Four' games I have ever seen.  Win, or lose, UCLA acquitted themselves admirably.....it could have gone either way.
