Can anyone help me figure out why there was only one low tide and one high tide for these couple of days.
It starts with November 4th where there's 2 low tides and one high tide.
Then the 5th there's one high tide and one low tide and that continues to the 8th. And then things are normal again.
What happened here?
I'll also take ideas for reference books if you don't know but think a book might help me.

It's because of Passagrille's location (gulf of Mexico, so it doesn't really quite experience ocean tides in the normal way) and geography. It really does experience rising and falling tides on the usual 12:24 (or so) schedule, but in some cases they're so indistinct that the phases blend together without an actual reversal in the direction of the tide. This graphical chart makes the phenomenon clear.
