An Early Breakfast

The upside: we can leave home and, ten minutes later, be paddling off down the river. The downside (or is it?): the river is tidal. Miss the tide and it’s mud, not water. Spring tides are biggest and best, and here in the West Country they peak early morning / early evening. Today we used a 5m tide to pick otherwise inaccessible blueberries. Afterwards we landed on the derelict sluice by the weir and spooned steaming hot porridge from our flasks, laced with honey.

  1. Thank you Patricia. A compliment from you has substance, as I admire the content and style of your own writing. I’m trying to replicate what I did with the old Pete’s Pots blog: a fair photo plus succinct text.
