Finally we made it back to the coast. We finally had an opportunity to consult our tide table. Perfect timing – it was just high tide. We noticed the water line and pitched our tent accordingly. During the night it seemed the roar of the waves was surprisingly loud. My last thoughts before falling asleep were, “Glad we pitched our tent at high tide. We’re safe.”
Safe? Technically yes. But it was a close call. In the morning we noticed the high tide line was inches from our tent. Guess the night high tide is higher than the day high tide. Good to know.
