Last Day at Waters Edge

It’s our last full day in the cottage and it began with drama.  The rain and high winds had pushed the tide up bringing salty water to the river.  The freshwater fish were not faring well and it was a mad panic trying to get as many as possible netted and into the Herbert Woods basin.  The barrier had been raised but unfortunately most of the fish had been trapped on the salty side.  If the fish were removed from the river quickly there was a good chance that they may survive so it was ‘all hands on deck’.


They were visiting all properties along the river …


We left them to it and drove to Thurne Dyke as I wanted to visit the shop.  I always manage to spend money here as it’s a lovely little shop with so many tempting goodies!

We then went to St Peter’s Church Repps but no luck with graves …


before visiting St Nicholas Church at Potter Heigham …


We were all still hunting for things to take home as presents so nipped up to Ludham Bridge Stores.  While there I took a wander and spotted a couple of boats having slight problems getting under the bridge …


We then returned to Waters Edge for lunch and while Hamish made himself comfortable I began the miserable task of packing. 


Later in the afternoon I noticed that a boat opposite us had been badly damaged in the high winds and I took Hamish for a walk for a last look around.


Look what I spotted …


It’s Flash of Light that we have already booked for next April!

In the evening we drove to Wayford Bridge and met up with the boys for a meal …
