Love that. What amazed me was the size of the boats that were all ready up that creek.

Where in England is this river? When I googled mapped it, it came up near Hull and I couldn't find the little slough you were on.

Re: weird marina entrance on the Humber - my current base

Thanks for the directions! I was going further upstream on the "main" river and got lost in the countryside. The google view is at low tide - man, that is pretty seriously low tide. Saw the street view of the Bay Horse in downtown Winteringham. Hoist a pint for me!
