Bourne End Under Water


Last Sunday, when we had some nice sunny weather (and a break from all this rain) I thought I would go for a walk, and well for some reason, I thought that it would be nice to go to Bourne End. And it wouldn’t be too flooded, maybe just a bit muddy.

Gosh was I wrong!

Luckily our favourite house, Old Thatch seemed to be far enough away from the pesky water, but I thought I would share with you the pictures I took on Sunday.

I’m hoping that the water levels go down before May, as there are plans for the Enid Blyton Society to meet there for the day!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my pictures!

    Crikey! The FFOs would have a bit of trouble doing their find-outing in that.

    Thanks Stef – you might have to turn into a mermaid if it carries on! May is a world away from
    February in weather terms so I am sure there will be no problems – don’t blame me if I am wrong!

    Yes,no reference to flooding I agree.I mean,how could Mrs Trotteville’s (do we ever discover her first name) Daffs grow all year round if they were inundated with flood water!!
