Thank to Alan C for the following text concerning a clearly enjoyable 16th March outing:
“Today the sun was shining and there was virtually no wind at Blakeney. The tide was so laid back it nearly forgot to come in!
We had a very pleasant first row of the year at Blakeney. Vicky, Peter, Madeleine, Alan and Steve launched over the slippery Blakeney muddy slipway and into the tide, pulling away with our own somewhat individual styles. Let’s hope nobody was watching. We all agreed we were a little rusty with our techniques. We rowed out to approximately Number 2 buoy, opposite the Morston Creek where we stopped and shared our chocolate ginger biscuits etc.; Temple’s Seal Boat passed us just at this moment, with a full complement of customers going out to see the seals, we were the on water amusement!
On the way back we managed to find the “only” shallow and grounded. Steve manfully jumped out and gave us a gentle nudge back to deeper water. Note to self and anyone else who might be interested in the shallow bits, it’s time to walk out at low tide and make mental notes…..”
