Vignettes from an English Estuary

I thought I would just post a few tiny fragments from the river here

first here is a snap of where I now live from a the flickr stream by John Fielding

if he gets upset and wants me to take them down they will be down in a jiffy

and here are the salt marshes from the same flikr stream  - no idea why that embedded and the other did not



Katie L waits on her mooring

this came up the river last night


the local kids out for their saturday morning indoctrination into sailing

    Truly an English heaven washed by a river (apologies to Rupert Brooke)

    Thought Cutest Boat on The Trot was Shoal Waters!
    Good look-a-like.

    Is Wagtail actually Shoal Waters?

    No, there is only one Shoal Waters and it is now owned by Tony (Creek sailor) Smith.

    The little cutie looks a bit like a 16′ Yachting Monthly Senior, with a bowsprit added. Lovely boat indeed!

    Looks like about the perfect place to retire D. Just lovely. As long as it has a decent chip shop and somewhere that sells a decent pie and mushy peas of course. Would love to see a video tour of the village and surrounding countryside with your usual entertaining bit of history, geology, controversy etc thrown in of course. :-)

    A big ’70’s Freedom and American flagged too, looks like it was re rigged from it old wishbone.
    John fielding photos are great , on his Flickr site. An east Anglian for sure.
    I keep forgetting to check the sail clubs web site during race day!
    Cheers Warren

    That little Wagtail is now up for sale (sadly) – we’ve loved sailing her on the Deben
