The circular Blakeney to Morston route was a great adventure this evening. It was a big tide! 3.5m at the quay, which is pretty big around here. We rode the rushing tide inland from the quayside towards Morston through marshland. It was lovely and sheltered back there. Then we had to work against the tide to get out in the harbour, but at least the rush had slowed.
Out in the harbour the wind picked up and there was water everywhere. The tide almost completely covered the marsh and the usual channel wall was an island surrounded by water.
As we came back into Blakeney, Bonzo – our +1 – was put to work, jumping out of the kayak, taking the painter in his mouth and pulling us up on to the shore. Extra biscuits for him.
It was a good evening adventure followed by a fantastic sunset; among the top 5 of all time since we moved here. The circular route needs a tide height of 3m or more at the quay to get through reliably. Try it!
