High Tide

Thanks to Mike Purdy for sharing these pictures of the extraordinary high tides we have at the moment.

It happens more regularly that one might think, but it’s still pretty spectacular when it happens and always amusing to watch people trying to walk along the 5 foot walk when it’s rising. It’s less funny when you’re trying to do it yourself.

Just one of the reasons I love living here. I spend a lot of my time moaning about Greenwich, but ultimately I love it. It’s worth my while remembering that sometimes…

    So does the “5 foot” refer to the width or the depth? Although if it was the latter, I guess it would be the “5 foot wade”.

    I got caught by a wave, whilst running last night, and loved it..made me smile all the way home. Though Mrs Bats was somewhat annoyed by my dripping wet feet. I thought it was so high because of the unusual high spring tide. Even the woolwich ferry had to stop running (no pun intended).
