School's Out



The sun is out, the tide is in, so what do the kids of Tollesbury do when school finishes?  They head for the creek or the salt pool and dive in, that's what!  Actually there were a lot more children than you can see in the photos, but I didn't want to get to close in case anyone objected to me taking photos.  They will swim until the tide goes and then they will wallow in the mud, before diving in the salt pool to clean off and head home for tea.  Of course someone else who has been melting all day in his black fur coat loved his dip with all the kids around, in fact he is sulking now because I made him come home!

Kids are the same everywhere. I even had my first dip in the lake, but didn't stay long. Need a bit more sun to warm up the surface to my liking. - Margy
