Low tide on the River Colne lets the mud tell its stories.
Saying so long to September on a stroll through Wivenhoe Woods.
Having recently moved home, I am meeting and getting to know my new neighbours. This one favours a spot two minutes from my front door, just by the jetty.

The reflective moon playing coy on last night’s walk west along the river Colne in Wivenhoe, Essex.
On a day of high winds and a high tide, I went out front to see if the flood barrier had been closed. If not, I wanted to know whether I needed sandbags at the apartment.
Sirene CS434, a fishing vessel moored on the River Colne at Wivenhoe, Essex.
Sadly, Wivenhoe no longer has a port or a shipyard. Happily, it still has a sailing club. From time to time, as well as the leisure craft, smaller working vessels, such as Sirene, can also be seen. A glimpse of the past.
