{Photography.16.1070}: just blather about lakes, sea {oceanannie} Sun, 29 Apr 2012 14:48:01 CDT (28 lines)

That's a very tranquil scene, Dave.  Those sunny ripples were in Nova
Scotia at a point where an inland lake ran in a short river to the
sea. Right where the ripples were, the tide was changing and the sea
was coming in.

I used to live a quarter of a mile from Lake Erie, sort of across from
where the Detroit River debouched into the lake - at night the
'talking' blasts and whistles from the ocean vessels and lakers
waiting to sail up river were fascinating sounds.

When I lived on the Ontario shore 7 years ago, it was in an urban
setting with a park between me and the water. Seldom tranquil, and
quite wonderful in a storm when the wind was on shore. Only rarely did
we see a laker, but there was a coal-generated power station half a
mile west and it was fun watching the coal boats come and go.

None of those were anything like living by the North Sea on its
southern shore - the tides were different every day of the year, and
the storms beyond words magnificent. One night there were gale force
winds from the north, which co-incided with high tide. The top of the
dyke was about four storeys above sea level, and that morning the sea
was spilling over the top. It was running like a little creek down the
hill, past the apartment, and on down to the steps a few blocks away
that led down to the centre of the town. One can only imagine how the
inhabitants felt that time in '53 when the dykes broke in that
terrible storm and all were flooded.

I miss not being close to the water...could you guess?  !!
