Time & Tide Project
There are things in life over which we have some measure of control, but the old adage reminds us that “time and tide wait for no man.” The passing of time, and the ebb and flow of the tides, remind us that generations have come and gone in our small island community and as surely as our elders depart this scene, so too goes a wealth of knowledge, folklore and history that is likely lost forever.
