Surfs up! Or is it?

Do you live near an ocean or some other tidal body of water? Do you want to know what time high tide is? Low tide? Or even the overall tide level throughout the day? This guide will show how you can use an Adafruit PyPortal smart display to easily fetch tide information from the Internet and display it.

CircuitPython is used for the code and the PyPortal library does all the heavy lifting. All that's left is some  initial data entry and it's ready for display.
