The White Cross, Richmond

The road in front of this pub in Richmond famously floods at high tide - quite a sight!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

I must admit I still feel like a tourist when this happens near to me further downstream . . fascinating to watch.

@Ronnie 2¢: It certainly is, and a very popular spot for it.

Looks like a bit of localized flooding happening here Daryl! The weather patterns across the world have changed so much that these phenomenon are becoming everyday events! Nicely captured! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: This really is an everyday event Eric - it's part of life on several stretches of the Thames. Has been going on for generations!

No wonder the patrons aren't concerned. "How about another pint, Harry?"

@Steve Rice: It's a shame when you get trapped and there's no way out... nothing to do but order another and wait...

That would be quite the sight. I would love to be there. Terrific shot.
