We quite often like to walk around Emsworth on a Saturday, wander around the old town, drop into one of the cafes for lunch and check out the interesting boats. With a very big spring tide and westerly gale blowing over winter things were a bit tricky recently.
I don't know why there's this obsession in England for stopping cyclist from using footpaths, but even the most hardened off road riders might have found this one a challenge.
The causeway across the Slipper mill pond was awash, but it didn't stop these hardy walkers even though the water came over the top of their wellies.
Even in the calm and sheltered creek besides Dolphin quay this boat wasn't looking too good.
