Boats at Blakeney

Boats at Blakeney
14th May 2010


I recently visited Blakeney on the North Norfolk coast and in spite of it raining as we set off and raining as we returned, we were blessed with an amazingly clear and sunny 60 minutes as we wandered round the creek and watched the high tide creep up to its maximum, and then gently slip back out again. I am not sure that I have ever seen the Blakeney Creek full to the brim before.



I was out snapping photos for my Open University course but couldn't resist capturing the images of the various boats moored up.



Blakeney is very near Holt, where I started my career all thise years ago, and I did lots of canoeing in the area in the early 1980's. A magical place if ever get the chance to visit.

Not the North Norfolk coast you know and love?

In the light of the content on Granny Buttons I must come clean - the sky is aided and abetted by Photoshop. Its the Blakeney I wanted to see (but it was a very nice day!)

You know, I don't mind a bit of colour enhancement. But I think I've probably said enough about all this now, especially over on GB. Do you think I've upset AD?

Thank you for owning up - just don't tell me you've electronically moved the boats!

No, the only movement of the boats was on account of the tide.
I said your observation would be a good topic for debate, but that wasnt supposed to be a prophetic comment!
And as for AD, no he will not have been offended. He revels in controversy and debate and I think he thoroughly enjoyed the topic.
