Today there is a high tide.
It is cause by the moon. The moon tonight is the biggest full Moon of 2010.
some 14% wider and 30% brighter than lesser full Moons of the year.
The drainage pipe there is to let the water that is in the street drain back into the canal.
This could cause serious flooding if there were for example a lot of rain or
a wind surge.
I told you before Christmas that I was going to be adding a section I called Fossils.
I will be writing more about this in the future.
It is interesting how I started this before January and how much it looks like the cracks of an earthquake.
But it also resembles the cracks in the desert from a parched earth.
Today I want to finish up a hand carved lino book mark.
I will be printing it today as well.
