The row will start at 3pm at the Mill
I am writing this in the middle of a humungous rainstorm that is thundering down on the Conservatory roof so I thought agghhh the rowing for tomorrow--I ought to look at all the comments on my last post of Oct 5th.
I see you are all waiting with baited breath to the weather forecast. Well it is tricky. High tide is 14.01 on a 5.1 so there will be lots of water around, but the weather at 12 noon is light rain showers 15C 82% humidity going to heavy rain showers at 1'oclock and 2o'clock.
So this is what I suggest we all do. Meet at 3'oclock when there are sunny intervals, row around the harbour--perhaps under the bridge and through the billy train posts have a look at the bird sanctuary, that should test the Cox's skills!!--not too close so as to avoid the wrath of the RSPB and Nigel!! and then go back to theMill arond 4 to 4.30. Enjoy a drink at the Oak or even the Ship for a change. I know this is finishing 2 to 2 and a half hours after high tide but as the water is so high it is worth the gamble--I think. The sunshine really starts at 4pm and humidity is down to 58% & 15c. So it will be a great time to enjoy the elements and the winds are lowish. Take layers and sunglasses.
Please do post your thoughts and hope to see some of you tomorrow. Ideas are welcome.
Have a great week-end
