Sunset Cruise

Just a quick post to let you all know that we have started our Sunset Cruises once again and they will be running every Tuesday and Thursday at 7 to 9pm until mid September.

As the season goes on the trips will depart a bit quicker each week as the nights will be drawing in so it best to call from mid August onwards.

Tuesday the 16th May was our 1st of the year and it was a cracker. Clear skies and good company made the trip. Yes it was cold by then end of the trip but it was totally worth it.

So if you fancy joining me this season then just give a call or reserve your seat online.

Call 01665 721667 or 01665 720760

Big Diggers

We had some big diggers and trucks at the harbour a few weeks ago and they are really impressive to see.  They were here to clean the harbour as its been over 3 years now since it was last cleaned and it really needed it.
The seaweed was stopping some of the boats as they were going out of the harbour and the mud was filling up too. 
They seem to do everything so quick but at the same time with grace. I know they are really skilled at their jobs but it is fascinating watching someone else at work too.

They filled up the digger with all the mud and took it to the other side of the harbour where they emptied it out and when the tide comes back in the mud will be washed away.
They have done this process for many years now but they always choose the best time to do it as they don't want to disturb the breeding birds and they don't do it through the winter either as they don't want to disturb the wintering seabirds.
The harbour works closely with Natural England and they also require a license to do such an operation too.

I think years and years ago they just went ahead and did it but in today's world it makes sense to do things right and so they should too.

The guys worked two different tides a day, so it was early mornings and late nights and they managed to get a lot more mud out of the harbour than they thought they would. They also had time to dig some areas that has helped boats turn around or load a lot better, which is a big help for my job.

Thank you once again for reading this blog and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Episode 2

We have updated our YouTube channel again.

Its been a mixed few weeks and we are slowly getting our heads into vlogging and editing side of things. We know we are far from the best but we are learning all the time and these days people seem to be watching YouTube a lot now.

We will still keep on blogging until the time comes that people don't want to read the blog anymore, but until that time comes we will still keep it up to date as much as possible.
