Today I pushed the limits as I walked back from Seymour Tower on a 10.67m tide 2.5 hours after low water. In places it was a wade and really showed how fast the tide rises around the coast of Jersey.
Imagine crossing a fast flowing river. That is what the tide streams felt like as i waded across the gullies to shore. Fun if you understand and know what you are doing. If not it is a frightening experience.
Filmed on my Cannon camera and after I reached the shore.
If you know what you are doing it can be fun and is great to swim the gullies. Otherwise it is a good reason to go with a guide so yo do not end up swimming...
