Video: the crashing waves of the North Sea in November

 

As I kayaked across the still waters of Blakeney Harbour, I could hear the roar of the waves crashing on the other side of the Point. Every so often a plume of white spray rose behind the Watch House and sea bank.

Pulling the kayak up high away from the tide, I walked across the narrow spit of land and down to where the North Sea was churning the beach shingle in a fierce, winter temper. The waves were mesmerising in the pale, early sun.

 

A sunrise kayak trip to the Blakeney Watchhouse

A sunrise paddle across to the Blakeney Watch House to start the week. It’s one of our favourite places on the Norfolk coast (we’ve written about our adventures staying out there in previous posts).

Uncharted creeks with The Coastal Exploration Company

As October cools into November, there are fewer days when time, tide and weather favour adventuring on the marsh. When they arrive, you have to seize them – and this morning we did, voyaging through the uncharted creeks around Wells with The Coastal Exploration Company until the channels became too narrow to navigate, even for the traditional Norfolk crab boat My Girls.
