Here is an entry I thought shall I or not. My wife said yes as she reminded me the water was still.
The movement was from the clouds and branches rustling in the wind.
Fingers crossed.


Quick, get it in there before he notices… :wink:


Not my problem Joe.

Steve’s on regulatory enforcement duties this week. Hw will doubtless have a word with the miscreant once he sobers up returns to the office.

Not much chance of getting still water here in Glasgow with current wind speeds approaching 20mph and not looking like easing any time soon :wind_face:

This is my entry

It’s low tide on what I am calling Karen’s Beach after an encounter last night with a particularly entitled white female.

At low tide the mud is exposed.

BUT - there is STILL WATER in the marina and the channel leading to the sea!


I think I’m going with this one.

Lovely mud!

If you were being serious, I guess we’d have to remind you of your own rules :wink::laughing:

Great! Someone HAS read the rules!
