This one of my favorite images taken this year.
Sadly, this is all that remains of the two barge docking posts that have been on this stretch of river for over a hundred years.
After such a long history, both posts vanished on separate occasions this season.
Very early in the season I noticed one of the posts had somehow been broken in half, and this ladder appeared to mark it. More recently, I found the other huge post washed up on one of the north shore beaches.

I regret not visiting Tollesbury on this day as Huffler would have sailed right up the high street.
Would you really want to dry out here?
