This is sort of a stupid question. Remember I have never lived anywhere close to the ocean so the subject of tides is very foreign to me. That said, here is my question. What does it mean to view the tides? How long does it take? Do you have to be viewing right when the time table says it's highest or should you be watching the rise? I warned you this was dumb. I just don't want to miss the experience by not knowing what I should be expecting.
