Tide tables belong in pretty much every household around here.
Otherwise, how are you going to know when to go swimming/walking on the beach/fishing/put your boat on the hard?
Add 19 minutes to these (Nelson) numbers and you’ve got the tides for Mapua. (big ones on Thursday and Friday…)
And if you’re on the wharf at exactly low or high tide, you’ll see the dance being performed by Patrick’s “Lily” and her 2 companions as their sterns gracefully swing around to point the bow against the new direction of the tide.
