Mother Nature shows off for the arrival of Spring

It’s been a big week of natural phenomena here in Blakeney. The week started off with a big show of the aurora borealis. Unfortunately we were below a thick mist and missed the show. The sky did clear, however, for the partial eclipse on Friday.

 

Cool huh? It is the first one I have seen, and was thrilling. Friday saw a trifecta of eclipse, supermoon, and Spring Equinox! What a combo! Living by the North Sea we all know what a supermoon means… Big tides! This morning was meant to be a 3.6m tide on the quay front here. But due to a 20m/hr North wind we were treated to a surprisingly big tide.

   

  

          

Tonight’s tide is schedual led to be 3.9m. We shall have to wait and see if the wind continues to blow! Tomorrow is set to be sunny and calm with an evening tide of 4m. Should be a couple of water-filled days!  

Here for you-know-who in the EDP.
