Roaring Arch Bridge in very low water

With 0.16m on the Billingford flow gauge the little weir at Roaring Arch Bridge is quite a dry bump and scrape:

Bungay Loop last Summer

On the 5th of August I paddled the Bungay Loop with the children in Corfyn.

We launched at Roaring Arch Bridge, this is looking back upstream as we drifted down the gravel riffle:

Next it was under the A143 and back in to bright sunlight:

Then we paddled down to Bungay Sluice portage point round the Loop, mostly with me paddling and the children picnicking. Finally we walked back to collect the car through the town centre, via the cafe with the gluten free cakes.

Walberswick last Summer

Another day from last Summer, July 23rd this time. Crabbing, paddling and some swimming at Walbersick with Mike and Val.

Paddling Corfyn with the children, having forgotten to put their buoyancy aids on. Luckily we were probably only in three feet of water:

Mike had a turn:

Then over the sand dunes for a swim off of the beach. Tolerably warm:

Picnic at Stiffkey last Summer

A day from last Summer, 28th July, up at Stiffkey salt marshes on a neap tide. Corfyn unloaded from the car and waiting with the picnic and paddling gear on board:

The day started with crabbing on the bridge while we waited for friends to arrive:

All on board to paddle the short distance to the corner sandy picnic place just down creek:

Picnic time:

Paddling Corfyn on my own after the picnic:

Tony's turn:

A good time was had by all.
