I am in Brightlingsea - -
- - - home of the Smack Preservation Society ( beautiful examples shown here), mud, a hideous modern development of waterside flats (ugh), floating pontoons, a one design dinghy (raced with as much fury as the dinghies at Tynemouth) and more beach huts.
Arrived yesterday and I am tied up on a floating pontoon in the middle of the creek - can I face pumping up the dinghy to row ashore? Nastier weather than usual - wind and heavy clouds.
