One thing that still confuses the heck out of me is the tides on the
Atlantic.  You go to Hilton Head or Tybee and the tides are up to 10 feet
different from high to low, but if you go up to Hatteras, NC it's like 1
foot.  How the hell does that work?

Gives a few clues - mostly it seems, the "funneling" effect of the
coastline (if any) as well as underwater topography
