Very few times in the last 19 years of being on my slip has the water been too high for me to pass under the Newfields-Stratham railroad trestle.
 
Add another time to the list last night.
 
Saw this guy when I stepped on the ramp to the boats. Knew I was in trouble by how high up the marsh the water was.

The stress was building as I eased up to the trestle.

Nope, nada, not going to make it.

At 7:45 PM and still slightly incoming, I bailed back to the dock. The tide was a 7.7' at the trestle tonight. 7.8' tomorrow, 8' Saturday.
 
I need to plan better.  :)
