Autumn's on its way at last

White horses laid seige to the beaches at high water as a gale hit the Norfolk coast tonight. There's usually a day when everything seems to change this time of year, as autumn comes knocking on the door.

We're three weeks away from the equinox. It's still officially summer. But the days are getting shorter and the night time temps are starting to drop.

I'd have gone for a few hours tonight if I'd seen the weather coming and work hadn't thrown a couple of curve balls.

I might even have given the zander the benefit of the doubt in a spot or two on what used to be a banker stretch.

This weekend's a definite now. The temps are forecast a little high, as summer clings on by its fingertips. But autumn's shown her hand tonight, as the clouds rush in from the bay and the rain carries a tang of salt spray.

Bring it on podnas. We've got work to do.
