weird marina entrance on the Humber - my current base

I am still slowly sailing around the UK

five years in and still going strong

I have been based on the Humber for the past eight months and have just moved to the Lincolnshire side of the estuary

here is the harbour entrance

can anyone beat this

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!
