So pick a small town and see it for the first time: even if you’ve lived there for years. And never get too old to get a thrill from an evening catching fireflies and lightning bugs. (Seneca, KS, June 19, 2016, 18:55, SX700 1/60s f3.2 ISQ800)
Thanks for having spent a day or so with us as we stop along our Western Loop “High Octane” tour of the United States. (Seneca, KS, June 19, 2016, 18:54 PDT, SX700 1/200s f6.3 ISO640, the sun is gone, the hills disappear into the sinking haze of another Seneca, Kansas night.)

The current can be very strong. At mid-tide there is a shallow channel close to this dive site, separating the islands of Longstone and Northern Hares, where the water races through on the flood and ebb tide. On a spring tide, the race is extremely strong, and although it is not exactly life threatening, it can be a nerve-racking experience to be swept through to the other bay on the inside of Longstone. This would be especially embarrassing if trip boats were dropping their passengers at the lighthouse landing stage in the same channel. The boat handler would also have to make a half-mile trip round to pick up his divers. At low tide a number of small islets are created, forming a long narrow lagoon, locally called Seal Gut, between them and the Longstone. This is used as a kindergarten by a lot of young seal pups. The only entrance or exit at low water is at the southern end of the lagoon, through a narrow canyon, 13 metres deep and only 3 metres wide underwater, with a flat, sand-and-stone seabed. As you move through the narrow canyon, the bottom rises up in a couple of steps to 5 metres, where the lagoon then opens out to 10-15-metres wide and 150 metres long. Visibility in the lagoon is usually excellent, with lots of life under the overhanging rocks and big boulders and there is no current at all.
