When I return to the main marsh, after only thirty minutes, it has acquired new topographic character. Thirty minutes translates into about a foot of water, a foot of water from an enormous area that has gone someplace else. The marsh is still mostly water, but the ratio between land and water is rapidly changing. I take advantage of the temporary passages and weave my way seaward.
When I take out, after a two hour trip, the marsh is almost all land.
