On Saturday, there was a 3* Severn Bore. That's an entire star better than the one I saw last month!
And, well, it was. Standing in a field this time, rather than on Over Bridge, to watch people try and surf it in kayaks (as well as on surfboards)
I could have taken my boat and had a go, but I thought I'd watch other people do it first! 'Inspection', if you will. Think I'll have a go next time though
Anyway, there were loads of people congregated on the riverbanks, and quite a number in the river too! 5 (maybe 6?) kayaks, and somewhere between 10 and 15 surfboards. Ish. Also assorted noise from the sky, where there was at least one helicopter, a microlight, and some paragliders. Bet they got a good view!
The bore arrived later than scheduled, but was worth the extra wait I'd taken both cameras for some reason, and I'm glad I did - the batteries in the Canon died just as the wave arrived. Typical. So a mad scrabble into my bag for the Olympus, and tada - photos! There's a video too, obviously not done by me!
