Things to do at the dock

27 September 2007 | Morro Bay, CA
Four times a day the boats that are moored across the channel from us turn around. It happens when the current in the channel changes because of the ebb and flow of the tide. Tom knew this, but he had never witnessed the turn.

So last night we checked the tide table, set the timer, and went out to watch. It took about a half hour after high tide before the boats started to turn. Even though we were watching, we missed the first one. They don't all turn at the same time. When all of the boats were facing the same way again, we went to bed satisfied.

We're leaving Morro Bay in a few minutes and continuing south.
