Ya know, it's easy for us landlubbers to under-appreciate tidal changes.
We parked our stuff on the beach one fine day and went for a walk down the shore. We passed a telephone pole jammed into the sand, marked off in one-foot intervals, with "High Tide" marked on top. It was so high (some 16 feet or so) we just giggled at it and continued on - maybe on some fluke it might get up there, but here? now? nah. Half hour or so later we wander back up the beach. We get to the pole. It's got about 3 feet poking out of the water. I freaked, ran ahead, and discovered some nice lady had - several times - pulled our stuff (esp. wallet & keys) out of the encroaching waters.
I'd be impressed if this scene ended with the couple leaving 'cuz their pleasant shoreline was under water.
