When I was up in Maine last summer, the tides were pretty important as to when heading down to the river was a good or a better idea. Tides are big there and dramatically change the landscape. Growing up in Florida, where people say, 'there aren't tides' and living here where people say 'there aren't tides' I have to say, I disagree. No, they aren't like the tides of the Northeast or the Northwest, but they ARE tides and that's what today's post is for.
I have an attitude and huge fondness about and for tides, and I'm here to tell you, there certainly ARE tides in Florida and the islands, just like there are seasonal changes. One just has to observe, only a little more closely, to capture and enjoy differences in tide and times; to see, really see, the wonders. While the notion of anything being subtle seems long out of fashion, with our big screen televisions, jumbo everything, and instant communications making sure you don't miss a thing, I would, quite confidently, say that a lot that is going on in our world(s) is being missed, all of the time, because it is not shouting or blaring or whipping into our face and mind.
