    that assists tidal generation in that it has a much smaller inpact than wind power (even that is small from the shore, as the proposed photo of the Mass. project shows, and as Jerome a Paris has made clear in many of his posts on wind power).

    I like to hang out in the water until I can't stand the pain in my ankles any longer. Of course, those that know their local harbors and the tide know when to swim, as the ebb tide leaves from the bottom. So, high tide at 2 p.m., the sun heats the surface water for a "delightful" swim an hour later!

      At 4:30, just short of high tide, I waded all the way to the rocks at the end of the beach and noticed a few "warm" eddys.

      I enjoy the cool surf on a hot day, but to placate the rest of my family we'll be in Virginia Beach later this week splashing in 80 degree waves.
