    Walking around in a salt marsh can be a challenging experience. You have to select the right trousers and footwear, of course. In the summer, you must consider no-see-ums, flies and other visitors. Without a strong breeze, and in hot weather, the aroma of the marsh may become stifling. Then there are the issues of protection from the sun, and dealing with treacherous substrates. Pluff mud and oyster shells can be encountered. And of course, you have to pay attention to the tides!
