Our Little Patch of Waterfront Property
I often talk about our little patch of woods. What you might not know is that we have waterfront property on a tidal river.
This little patch of waterfront property is separated from the rest of our land by the old route U.S. 1. The picture below is taken from our patch of river frontage. See that tiny little bit of land in the left foreground? That’s ours. Pretty impressive, huh?
Today’s picture is at an astronomical high tide. High tide during a storm will mostly cover the land. At low tide, there is no water. Someday we may stake a dinghy there. For now I’ll just enjoy the view.
