I've never lived by the sea, but whenever we visit there the idea seems appealing. There's something about the rhythm of life that is reassuring, like the ebb and flow of the tides. I hadn't really thought much about tides whenever we went for a walk near the water here. By coincidence we must have always been out for a walk when the tide was in.
Today, however, the difference in the view at one of our favourite places was immediately apparent.
