Wells to Blakeney row

On 19th June we joined several other craft and took part in an ‘adventure row’ from Wells to Blakeney organised by the Coastal Rowing Association Blakeney (CRAB). The weather couldn’t have been better! The first half followed the creek through the marsh from Wells; along East Fleet then under a VERY low iron bridge joined Stonemeal creek then Cabbage creek and out into the  main Blakeney Harbour and Point. Here we were surrounded by curious seals all the way to a lunch stop at the Old Lifeboat Station. For the last half, we followed the river Glaven up to Blakeney itself. After hauling the boats out we sat in the sun with a cup of tea and bacon butties, chewing the cud!

Our thanks to the CRAB for inviting us; you can see lots of video and photos by following this link on their site: Coastal Rowing Association Blakeney

Finally; they intend repeating the excursion on 1st September, so put the date in your diary.
