Yes… I kid you not. Most of the time the river flows downhill, especially where these photos were taken. If you look closely you’ll see the water tumbling over the weir. If I’m not mistaken, this is the last weir on the river so, below here the river can potentially flow uphill, during storm spring tides! I reckon that’s why the weir was placed at this exact location.
And off they go… after re-floating the boat. Yes, they are going upstream and have just completed the portage of the weir. All a whole lot of fun in the name of entertainment and sport. Well, maybe if you’re young and haven’t quite worked out that there are better things to do in life… like becoming a Francophile and eating the great cheeses to be found in your own backyard. This is just what Osyth did for a living. Passion and oh well, more passion! Mind you… I’m still wondering if she’ll share her story about the connection with boats?
Guess what? It’s Friday again… may you have a great one and an even better weekend!
PS – Please still keep checking your spam boxes… yes, those virtual trash cans that you possess… I think WP are still chucking some of my bits in there… just for the fun!
