Today is haiku day on the Blogathon, so I’ve got a little something for you there.
The water is high,
King Tide erasing the beach,
swallowing it whole.
According to a piece I heard on NPR, the Supermoon, when everything aligns correctly, can produce what’s called a King Tide. While I don’t think we’re in an area that should be affected by the King Tide, The Mississippi Sound was certainly up this afternoon. There were waves coming into the shore, and you couldn’t see any of the outlets, could barely see the signs for them. I drive the beach almost every Monday-Friday, usually about the same time, and I haven’t seen the tide looking quite like that before. Even tonight on the way home, with the tide out, the water was still high, so I’m going to go ahead and call it our very own King Tide.
I am reminded that part of the reason why I love living here is because I get to live near the beach. We’re literally 6 blocks from the beach. There were things that I needed to do this weekend, but I’m looking forward to spending our Saturday afternoon lounging on the beach, a drink in hand, the Nook charged and loaded.
We’re also looking forward to the Fourth of July on the beach. If any of y’all are going to be in the neighborhood, feel free to join the party. I hear there will be drinks, food, and fireworks. ON THE BEACH. A girl really couldn’t ask for much more.
