River Mersey Bore

While looking at where we could go caching today, taking into account avoiding snow, we noticed this Earthcache  on the River Mersey and as luck would have it today was to be one of the best days to view it.  We had no idea there was one.

This is the second bore we have seen, having witnessed the famous Severn Bore in September 2007 when we lived in the Midlands.

A bore is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave of water that travels up a river against the direction of the river current.

We arrived early and did a couple of multis before we sat and waited for the wave to arrive. Better to be half an hour early than a minute too late where a bore is concerned 😀   Another cacher was also waiting, Tech 17, he was telling us all sorts of interesting info about the bore, we enjoyed a lovely chat before going our separate ways.

Here is a short video I made of the bore.... so sit back, relax and enjoy this calming film 😊

Next one we need to see is the Dee Bore....
