Hey just a thought here.
Clocks will have gone back by then
So it could be quite darkish by 18.00, -- low water you reckon?

Bass will still be about but even if not , it could be a good day to explore the Swellies at low water

Anyone want a bash (oops scuse pun!) at negotiating said rapids?

I know where the rocks are-- cos I,ve hit em all

That takes me back to a time in the mid '90s when a chap from work, while out on his lunch break, was asked directions by a lorry driver to Crown Street. My colleague was puzzled as he wasn't aware of such a street in Carmarthen........well, you can work the rest out!
The lorry had been driven down from the midlands that morning, probably already travelled twice the necessary distance when he realised his mistake. Suffice to say, the people in Crown Street didn't get their delivery that day.
