I have been seeing a lot of flooded tiles over the last week. Of course
doing a Cntrl+F5 on my browser refreshes the old tiles, so it's not
Hopefully the current work now is avoiding that happening, as the country
"flooded" can look bad to new viewers. It was also annoying when I was out
of signal and OsmAnd seemed to have some tiles flooded.

For river coastlines, I believe The Thames is tidal as up as Teddington
lock. That would be even more excessive/impractical than Totnes, and have
all of central London be "by the sea".

For oddities with tidal marks, I don't know if the "Loe Bar" provides
anything interesting. It's a sand bar, on one side is the coast and on the
other is "The Loe" freshwater lake.

Thanks for your detailed help.
