Subject: Re: Thames Tides
Hi Ziners -- Baerbel's mention of Thames tides, reminds me of walking in Richmond Park a couple of years ago with my sister. Large areas near the river were flooded and my sister kept saying there must have been a big storm. Since we'd been in London for a few days and had heard no mention of a storm, I pronounced the flooding to be tidal. A couple of hours she had to admit that I was right. I can't tell you how sweet it is to score a point on your big sister even though you've both reached a certain age!

While on the subject -- I would highly recommend that anyone going to Hampton Court take the time to explore Richmond a bit.
