Oh Wow ... now that gives an idea of the tides there...amazing...and Uni is right...that red bouy just sets it all off nicely ;)

See ya soon little GH from Racoon ;)

scml Yes quite a rise here, that black mud stinks though and the sand that I was standing on allows you to slowly sink into it a bit .... dodgy stuff ~ Glad you like it little Racoon ~ Ciao GH

Quite bizar sceneries you get with those Channel tides, he!

I couldn't get enough of it!

My son knows all about the stinking mud after he wanted to go a have a walk on a little "beach". And so did I, when I had to clean (scrub) of his new sandals... :p !!

Gtz, Patricia

Patricia Hiele I think that the Channel Islands and St Malo get the biggest rise and fall of the tides Patricia ~ good story btw too ~ Ciao nick

Flip ..... flop ..... suck .... squidge ..... slurp .... Ah!!! at last I have got to the sea to wash my tail, and my long locks are muddied. I look a perfect fright. Nice photo Nick, it kind of reminds me of Wardie harbour in Edinburgh :))
