It is interesting to observe this channel’s water level from the Saigon River shifting throughout the day from being emptied to full - dragging new vegetation in and out; and the same small fishing 🎣 boat noisily chugging out early at the crack of dawn and back before noon.
This is that thing that revolves around our planet, influences our gravity and as result, our tides and to some, even our moods and behavior. The lunar effect is a long debated theory that is almost too coincidental! I took this pic with an iPhone 7 through a rickety old telescope at a rickety old beach house in rickety old Brittania Bay!
The tide in Long Island Sound is derived from the Northern Atlantic Ocean and consists primarily of a stationary wave. The oscillations of the waves we see are set up and maintained by the periodic tidal forces of the sun and moon. As we see here, when the water recedes back into the Sound, sea form is often left behind. Sea foam, or spume, is a type of foam created by the agitation of seawater, particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter (including proteins, lignins, and lipids) derived from sources such as the offshore breakdown of algal blooms.

The thing that I always miss the most returning from south is warm water. Just being and feeling all around me.
We are working hard on the farm and getting super excited for the Inaugural Wrightsville Beach oyster festival at Waterman's Brewery one week from today, March 3. There will be an N. SEA. Oyster co table set up with our awesome Masonboro Sound oysters. We will be there shucking and ready to talk your ear off about oysters. Come out and get some delicious, salty, sustainable, local, seafood! #uncw#wilmingtonnc#local#seafood#sustainable
“Do you see the way the tides touch the shore, recede, touch the shore... on and on endlessly?”
<Yes, it’s so calming.>
“My mother always told me that’s what love is like. It comes and goes.”
<Do you think she was right?>
“I think she was. She was just missing one thing... Whenever it goes, I will go with it.”

Incoming tide meditation #2. I love the slow drama of watching the tide come in, and after a long noisy week it was magical to just stand in my boots, listen to silence, and wait for the water.
