Today at Afton Station reminded me of my years living near water in which there were tides constantly flowing in and out. At the Station, morning was low tide, very quiet, almost relaxing in the tranquility. Then, around noon, the tide rushed in. People arrived, sometimes many at one time, and the tranquility was broken. But it was broken just the way we like it, with an influx of happy travelers and tourists.
They came from Portland OR, Denver IA, Santa Cruz CA, Bend OR, St. Louis MO, Muncie IN, Winchester VA, Hastings MN, Louisburg KS, Enid OK, Alva OK, Jay OK, Paris France, Austria, and Copenhagen Denmark.
Don't forget to check out the Super Moon tonight. It should be quite a sight! The moon has much to do with the tides. Perhaps that's why our day at Afton Station was so tidal. . .
