NT2976 : Knee deep in the Big Muddy

taken 12 years ago, near to Leith, Edinburgh, Great Britain

Knee deep in the Big Muddy
Knee deep in the Big Muddy
The navigation beacon at the end of an outfall pipe is all of this square above the sea. The OS suggest that a fragment of beach exists at low tide at NT290760. I visited the corner nearest land at low water on a spring tide, lowest tide of the month and was still knee deep in the murky Firth of Forth. A wade of faith. It may dry in an exceptional tide. The ground is firm muddy sand (not that I could see it).

It was a foggy morning but I could still see the beacon and the shore. More importantly fog implies calm and you don't want waves for this game. Taken from just inside the square at NT290760.
