Top of the Tide

Breydon Water, south side: 25 May 2020

There is a moment of stillness in the estuary when it seems the water is undecided which way to flow. This day the stillness is aided by an extraordinary lack of wind.

An ancient wreck, and even more ancient alexanders: 25 May 2020

Alexanders were brought to Britain by the Romans and can be found in greatest profusion around the old Roman forts. Here we’re about 3 miles from Burgh Castle, a Roman *installation*.  To the far side of the estuary is Caister, where the footings remain of the old Roman barracks.

    The water looks like ice. It looks like you could Ice Skate on it.
    Both are enchanting.

    Very peaceful picture, Crispina. The water must be in real confusion for the it’s very still. How have you been? There was a cyclone here in my city and we didn’t have internet or network for about 4-5 days

  8. Very serene. Alexanders grow all over our local priory and castle.

  9. The things sticking up out of the water remind me vaguely of those Easter Island statues. Watching, looking, waiting, guarding.
