I just now remembered this one time when I was on a school trip to some….butthole nowhere village??? what is that place. it was so dark i honestly can’t remember. anyway it was by the sea and the tide was coming in so there was a tiny island of sand a little ways away from shore and me and some classmates heard a meow and they were like ‘omg what do we do’ but I IMMEDIATELY threw off my shoes and went to retrieve the cat that got stuck in high tide. being a fairly quiet child everyone was like ‘where’d all that initiative come from’
anyway that’s something Agent Washington has done at some point
Home is the waves, his family swimming beside him as he hunts for fish, the sparkling water and the hidden depths, forests of kelp swaying gently in the current. But home is also Kevin’s smile, the way he cuddles up next to him in Kevin’s bed, watching movies; it’s the colorful rocks on the trail in the state park, the dazzling cliffs and the beaches.
phenomenon known as the supermoon will reach its most luminescent in
North America before dawn on Monday. It will reach its zenith in Asia
and the South Pacific on Monday night. Across the international dateline
in New Zealand, it will reach its brightest after midnight on Tuesday
moon orbits the Earth in an oval shape. The moon will be at its
brightest this week because it is coming closer to the Earth along its
elliptical orbit than at any time since January 1948. The supermoon will
also bring stronger than usual high tides, followed by plunging low
tides the next morning.

On this day in music history: January 31, 1981 - “The Tide Is High” by Blondie hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week. Written by John Holt, it is the third chart topping single for the New York based rock band fronted by lead vocalist Debbie Harry. The song is a cover of the Jamaican rocksteady classic originally recorded by The Paragons in 1967. Debbie Harry and Chris Stein discover the song on a compilation tape of Caribbean music that a mutual friend gives them, while they are in London. “Tide” is released as the first single from Blondie’s fifth studio album “Autoamerican” in November of 1980. Early US pressings of “Tide” erroneously credits the songwriter as being “Duke Reid”(The Paragons producer) rather than John Holt. It is corrected on subsequent pressings of the 45. The single also includes the non-LP B-side “Suzy And Jeffrey” which also becomes a fan favorite. Entering the Hot 100 at #81 on November 15, 1980, it climbs to the top of the chart eleven weeks later. “The Tide Is High” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
