Bad news...

... the Handfast Tug and Charlie Rock reached the Isle of Wight but then took shelter off Shanklin last night but with high winds forecast in the Solent decided to play safe and docked at Camber Docks in Portsmouth this morning.

Harry is not happy..........

....Harry in the spotlight first thing this morning!

Another high tide halted work but the rocks are doing their job.

Presumably it's a waiting game now until the winds die down.
No wonder Harry and all the lads are fed up....just as locals are.
Completion date November 30....long gone!
December 6?...not a chance.
Sorry the end of next week we hope all  this will be history and we can report on "The birds of Pagham Spit" again but as you can gather we are rather pre-occupied with rocks, JCBs and barges etc.
