I planned a meeting t the White Cross pub on Richmond riverside.It was to coincide with the highest tide of the year-which comes up and into the pub garden.
It certainly did its stuff- wonderfully.The water came up to the steps of the pub- the ffotpath being well and truly under water.
We had a wonderful view from the balcony.I'd booked the upstairs room- so we'd get a good view and could be on our own-just VTers up there enjoying the spectacle.
Some local kids actually were paddling , some even swimming in the water covering the footpath!It was like a happy, beach scene!
A certain member-PhilKeen- went so far as to take his shoes and socks off and go paddling!
