My trip to Lake Margaretting
I took these photos at around 8pm on Sunday 29 April 2012. I was trying to get from Billericay to Ingatestone - not a difficult journey normally - but the main route was closed, so I went through Stock and down Swan Lane, past the White Horse at Margaretting Tye, and then found this scene in front of me, close to the river Wid, which isn't a particularly big river. Or so I thought. (Just to emphasise: all of these rivers are usually very dry roads!)
Having succesfully negotiated my car through this (albeit not in the direction I wanted to go), I then waded back into the waters so I could take the photos. Luckily my clothes are still in one piece, and I didn't catch pneumonia.

I think I'm meant to do an "About" here but I think you'd be more interested in seeing a random seagull.
