|UP..... at last.|
One particular benefit of the time I 'bought' was that I got to see the state of the river in the town and to say I was surprised was an understatement. The prolonged rain fall we had a few days previous had finally culminated in extra water on the river.
I'd been squawking to anyone who would listen that the river needed a proper flush through to get rid a lot of the branches and debris that was left over from autumnal gales. I wouldn't say it was flood conditions, but one or two swims had water where I would usually be sitting, so it's fair to say it was UP, probably for the first time in 10 months. So excited was I, the first thing I did upon getting home was to inform Hannibal of the news, not quite "He's been he's been" more like "It's up, it's up, the river is up."
Anyway, at 1400 I arrived on the bank full of xmas hope and joy, many of my usual swims were out so I hit the areas which I considered to be the next best option that were closest to them.
