(something strange has happened to the tide table format - for accurate information you can check the daily tides for this area here: Tide Table)
Sea temperature: not taken - to rough
Sea conditions: see above - the kind of rough that takes the waves in all directions
Weather: very windy with stunning cloud formation
Joined by: The Poet and The LE
Topics of conversation:
The clouds - it was too windy to get the identification book out so phone photos serve to identify now that I'm home, I need a Gavin Pretor-Pinney cloud app... as he says "cloudspotting legitimises doing nothing" and if you are doing nothing and have 20 minutes then take a look at this:
You'll notice that it's only 10 minutes long, but you'll need another 10 after that to stare at the sky, trust me (as The Twerp would say).
Yesterday and today the sun and moon were up together, when the sea is calm it is wonderful to be able to stand in the water with your arms outstretched east/west and point to both, but today the sea was not calm. It was going in every direction and DK and The Poet baptised themselves and got out swiftly as The LE and I stood guard realising the futility of such a posture. The Pirate's Wife had sent me a text to say he wasn't coming in as it sounded rough, but he showed up as the others were getting out saying he thought it looked 'doable'. It wasn't. (I'm still having a sense of humour failure that he thinks he's invincible, or that those of us who help him in an out are.)
