Reminder

This week the Thames Sailing Barge Reminder moored up in Wivenhoe. In the nineteenth century there were over 2000 of these cargo boats, now Reminder is one of only a few. Built in 1929 in Mistley as a racing barge, she was repurposed as a leisure vessel in 1975. A present glimpse of times past.

Distant Shore

The view across towards Fingringhoe from the walk to Alresford Creek.

If I want a break from the computer screen, I can be here in minutes. Another world, on my doorstep, the perfect tonic.
