We went out to see Robert's 3rd boat Tuesday. "Briar" is a 1937 21' wooden Irish sloop on a mooring near Woolverstone. The photos were taken on her camera, so check her blog for them (www.lifeizgudontheroad.wordpress.com). We were careful to check the tide table as Robert said we needed to be back to land by 2 hours after high tide. What we did not know is that high tide here is nearly 30 minutes later than at the harbor mouth - which the chart lists - AND the chart did not adjust for summer time. So we returned at 3p - high tide was listed as "13:31". The road out was underwater. So, time for a beer.
Wednesday we went back to Long Melton to see one of the manor houses there (hey kids - what is that by my foot?), to get more of the awesome sausage from the butcher, to have another sandwich from Malcomb's sandwich shop, then come home for a short walk before dinner. Tonight was the once-a-month community get together for English folk songs at the Bull. So Donna and I invited Terry and Lynn (see Donna's blog on them), Terry came, Malcomb happened in, and we missed the singing for solving all the world's problems! ;)
The thing by my foot is a fungus growing in the rich English soil.
