It's chilly, but not this chilly...

This picture belongs to the incredibly brave and stoic Gerry Clark who survived a frighteningly freezing time in the Southern Ocean on his boat Totorore in the 1980's,













...and I am worried about my washing machine;  how ridiculously petty and suburban is that?!  I think it's frozen (it lives in a shed next to the also-frozen outside loo).  At least I am not having to hack ice from my rudder so I can steer (under bare poles) and stay alive.

My washing machine doesn't look good in photos,  so here are some pictures of a mildly snowy Mersea Island instead.









If you click on the picture below (to make it bigger) you can just about make out the withies marking the oyster beds.
