Negative Low and the Full Circle

I am back in Boston, after eight years of living in the Midwest. I completed the full circle, since exactly twenty years ago to this month I arrived from Europe to Boston!

This is a week of negative low tides, following the September new moon in Boston Harbor. The x-ray view of each depression and structure provides important clues to a shorebound fisherman. With plenty of baitfish around and relative scarcity of stripers, each outing becomes a new challenge. Tide after tide, you become the one with the austere nature of surf swept shorelines, hoping that the big one will surprise you with a gift.
