Cutting it Fine
Saturday 28th April 2012
On Sunday 22nd April, the tide was at full height at 6.56am. This sequence of pictures was taken beginning at 9.52am, three hours after high tide! With the water running out fast, this couple had to be admired for attempting to head down river. With walls of mud on each side of the boat, and very little water under it, the engine was finally started and the two occupants plus dog must have breathed a sigh of relief as they headed for deeper water. Perhaps the occupants knew exactly what they were doing or, perhaps, they were just very lucky. It would have been a long, cold wait till the tide came in again!
