Remember summer?

Winter has its beauty, but every so often the mind drifts back to the lazy ease of summer on the water, paddling out in the kayak to our sailing boat.

Railway to the sea

The path ambles alongside the waters of Chichester Harbour, passing close to the grand houses with their lawns and terraces. There’s a place, past Itchenor and through the trees twisted by an age of sea wind, where metal rails disappear into the tidal mud. An approach by water would reveal a different perspective, of the boat house they serve on the harbour’s edge, with its own little branch line for launching into the shallow water.

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.

Blowing from the North and West

The wind was in the North and West this morning, bringing the tide flooding over The Carnser in Blakeney. One of those gusting, squalling days which speaks of a North Sea changing its temperament and settling into the grumpiness of winter.

A single boat was braving the harbour chop, spray breaking over its bows, as the professionals from the boat yard continued about their business, bringing the leisure craft home for winter.

See our Instagram for a video with a rather different perspective on the same tide…
