Ice pushed away from the marina entrance by the incoming tide
The Marina Sees the first ice of the winter
A good frost causes ice to cover the wooden pontoons
Wooden pontoons can be very slippery with only a minor frost, however the marina staff apply salt along the pontoons as far as our boat and this deals with it very effectively
The marina staff are very helpful, laying salt down to the steps of our boat
The rise and fall of the tide takes some getting used to, With a very high tide we are almost level with the marina promenade above the marina basin. This changes dramatically when the tide recedes as we are left almost 9 meters below the promenade.
