Do you watch the tides? Water goes up, water goes down and that’s it right? Of course it’s never that simple is it?
Sometimes, I can be incredibly dumb. I never found out until not too long ago that spring tides have nothing at all to do with spring, and that they occur every month, as the earth rotates, and the moon revolves around the earth, it’s a dance much more sophisticated than the tango, and much more delightful to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqDEaFjIXPw
I must admit, I never know what state the tide is going to be in when I arrive at the waterfront. Perhaps I should – it does after all follow a very, very predictable, so I should be able to know day to day.
A good demonstrator of the change of the tides is the Gosport Ferry Ramp, which when the tide is high, is pretty much level, and when low there is quite a steep slope to it.
It all feeds in to what makes my morning walk interesting.
