i was expecting the water, and i know the tide is out to be more blurred? will this only occur when the water is at high tide ie more of it? i also expected the scene to have a silky look?

How fast was the water moving, and how long was your shutter speed? Those are the critical items. From the looks of it, you were in front of a "backwater" area of the river, where the water is not moving quickly. If the shutter speed originally was 1/250th, ten stops slower is 4 sec, which is slow, but probably not slow enough to make a slow or nearly immobile waterflow into "silk."
If you try the same thing at, say, Niagara Falls, you'll get nothing but ribbons, with no water detail whatever.
