Neither can I - they do seem to have achieved something today though - it was hard to tell because the tide was 3/4 in but there are now a load of rocks sticking out of the water - it used to be nice soft sand!!!

Saga continues

Sorry if any of you find this boring but remember it's OUR taxes paying for this!!!

Today they decided to get in a big digger again - has done a great job - providing they don't use the dredger and fill it in again. Notice the big sandbank that has now built up in front of the harbour sill - that used to be clear - what do you expect when they stir up the sand on an incoming tide?

Spoke to a bloke today who runs a dredging company - when I told him what they were doing he was hysterical......

Well they sent out a digger again and they have given up on the dredging. The channel is a bit better than it was but you still only have about 2hrs either side of HW - pathetic. When the summer is over I will probably move to Swansea marina - at least you have almost constant access there and it's a lot more sheltered in the winter.
