I went down to the river last weekend to try taking photos of the swollen river. However it was nearly so bad compared to downstream, so instead here is a rather elegant tree:

I went to Rye Harbour with my parents last week on the one day over Christmas that didn’t rain. We visited the same place almost exactly four years ago as documented on this very blog, and I took a very similar set of photos. Reassuringly the red and black house is still intact. Good waves […]
