Autumn brings big spring tides in Blakeney

The strengthening winds of autumn, low pressure in the North Sea and the natural cycle of spring tides will often bring the sea flooding over Blakeney Quay as the year wanes.

I could see it from the bedroom window this morning and ventured out with Bonzo, my trusty four-legged assistant, to take a few photos before breakfast.
