King Tide has returned. Long live the king tide. I have a great respect for the tide that rises so high that it floods the land. We have lived here for more than 30 years and it's a phenomenon that has only begun occurring in the past decade. I know that there have been other places on this lovely little island that have experienced the king tide for many years before we have, but that means that the ocean is rising if it's occurring in more areas. It's kind of scary to see the water bubbling from the manhole covers!
