Kayaker takes to quayside road at high tide in Blakeney

You don't usually see people getting about in kayaks on the landward side of The Quay in Blakeney.
They're far more common on the other side of the railing, in the River Glaven, which runs alongside the waterfront road.
But one water sports fan found his small vessel was just as useful on a stretch meant for road vehicles during this morning's (Tuesday, August 14) high tide.
Water crept over the river bank to cover almost the entire roadway of The Quay, which runs past the Blakeney Hotel.
The high tide peaked at 9.10am with a height of 6.05 metres.

The next high tide in the village will be at 9.52pm tonight (with a height of 5.79 metres) and then again at 9.54am tomorrow (with a height of 5.96 metres).
