Grateful to Gary

Today's high tide gave me an opportunity to try and rid the Moat of the huge tree root stuck there. I donned the chest waders and struggled and moved the monster for half an hour, before giving up when it stuck fast. Local tradesman and wind surfing enthusiast Gary Reid saw my struggles, offered to don his wetsuit and have a go at shifting it. Gary heroically grappled with the monster, pulling, pushing and rocking it over the stones and ultimately swimming it into midstream to be carried off with the ebb tide ! I tried to take a photo of Gary's triumph but my camera was soaked - although I had it in a top pocket ...what a cost to keep the moat clear. My Grateful thanks to Gary !
