Prince of (Low) Tides

At home in the waves

Tidal charts. Bicycle wrenches. Problem solving has never been my forte, but working collaboratively as a tight team of three we’ve made some progress this summer. Charlie can cover all the ocean he sees in dreams when at low tide; good rapport with lifeguards ensues and we’re back to day tripping from beach house a mere 85 miles from ocean. That’s why they print those charts! We can also handle rudimentary repairs to his mountain bike down along the rugged trails hugging the Raritan River. But it’s not the tools that make it work; it’s the loving family—from the East Bay to N. Ctr. Jersey, ocean to ocean–that has blessed Charlie with the opportunity of showing the way. And taught me how it works too.
