High tide adventures.

Yesterday we decided to make the most of a Friday off work and used the morning high tide to make a trip down to Blakeney Point. Rather than hiking, or making use of the many tour boats, we were able to take the kayak at a strategic time. An hour before high tide we set off. The wind and tide against us we slowly made our way down to the point where we were treated to some time with our local seal colony. I was fortunate to get some shots of our new friends.

Please note that these are taken with a zoom and we were never any closer than 5m. We also did not approach the colony on the shore, rather they took an interest and came to us.

We then turned home and with that the tide turned to rush round the point. This time, however, we were aided by the wind which created surges we were able to coast along the top of home.

Stay tuned for a Blakeney low tide adventure.
