Mind you high tide is early in the morning, so for most of the day the boat will be like this:
That was taken a few weeks ago. Its interesting to note all the Geese have already eaten all the green stuff that grew on the mud over the summer. There are thousands of them roaming the mud at low tide, churning it up so much that the water has turned from being clear in the summer, to being a grey cloudy mess. They're an amazing sight to watch as they fly over and funny to hear as they go about their business, but in such huge numbers they don't half change the character of the harbour. Winter is definately here when they're around!
