I think it's common cause. We got to the sea when it was metaphysically
proper to do so, the same thing which made the day special enough for
Hashem to tell us to rest on it.

Much the way Chazal would tell us that Avraham was eating matzos because
the event was on what would in the future be Pesach. There is something
Pesach-y about the day which is part of why the redemption was then.
