ON THE EDGE IN THE MARINA – GARRY ARMSTRONG

ON THE EDGE – A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGES


To a degree, being in the water on a boat, you are always on the edge, but more so if you happen to be up on the bow, or back on the deck. And yesterday we were out and about. Very edgy.

As a reporter for Channel 7 in Boston for 31 years, I was witness to most of the major events affecting the region. I met a lot of people ... politicians, actors, moguls, criminals and many regular folks caught up in extraordinary situations. Sometimes, I write about the people I've met and places I've been. Sometimes, I write about life, my family, my dogs and me. Or what might otherwise be called Life.

      1. I have to confess ocean tides baffle me – i understand the principle but the practices just don’t add up? My home is on the shore of the Indian Ocean but our daily tidal range is less than 3 feet and quite often down to one foot? Winds can whip up a fairly big ‘swell’ but our tidal level is tiny compared to other places in the world.

        1. Tides are complicated by a lot of stuff. Wind. The bottom of the ocean. Depth. Ocean floor, whether it’s flat or hilly. Rocky shoreline or sand. Weather, of course. The moon and its phase because all tides are caused by the moon. So you can live on the Atlantic coastline and have a minimal tide, or live up along one of our rocky coastlines and get a 12-foot tide. And if the moon is full with the right weather and the tide coming in, you could have a super tide — which is when towns get washed away.

          Exactly how it’s calculated? You’d need an oceanographer to explain the details, but it is not the same in any two places.

  1. I was noticing the water marks on the mooring posts. Your water seems to be quite low. Our water on Lake Ontario is still very high for us approx. 3′ more than usual.

  2. It was a great day for a photo shoot on the water. I had no idea the skipper was taking us out. It turned out to be something of an adventure. We’ll have the full story coming up in a few days.
