photoblog image Blakeney 4/7

Blakeney 4/7

This picture really shows quite well how the marshes are penetrated by the creeks at Blakeney, which at full tide allow small craft to make their way to and from the sea which is just over the sandbank on the top right hand side of the picture.  We are away today at the funeral of my friend who died recently, in Cambridgeshire, and are then spending tomorrow in Ely so I will catch up with you all on Saturday, all being well.

I like the "goosenecks" you show here, Brian
I'm sorry for the loss of your friend, and wish you a safe journey.
Brian Walbey: Traffic wise the journey home was awful but the funeral service was very nice, it was good to see my other friends and their wives, albeit on a sad occasion, and Tony's wife Jenny is holding up very well, with him having Dementia she sort of lost him a long time ago I suppose.
I love the sweep of the river that you have shown very well Brian.
Brian Walbey: I like the way it winds through the marshes.

Estuary swamps are wonderful places, Brian. This is a fabulous pic.

This is fascinating, it reminds of parts in Netherlands and North-Germany.

A birdwatcher's paradise. The Stooges with Dick Trim are near Grantham today, the weather is fine
Brian Walbey: if Grantham was like our journey to March then you sadly had drizzle most of the day, but Grantham is worth a visit anyway.

Jolie vue. Bon courage pour l'enterrement.
An ancient landscape - you should read Seahenge by Frances Pryor - he's a wetlands archaeologist.
This is a lovely area to wander.

I hope that the funeral went as well as can be expecting. Funny old world isn't it? I've been celebrating joyful wedding yet others have been mourning the passing of loved ones.
