The Severn Bore

Great photos this week of the Severn Bore in Gloucestershire. I had never heard of it before last year when I read Julian Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending (see my review here). He recalls surfers riding a wave up the river at a number of points in his narrative, but I had difficulty envisaging what he meant. Thanks to last week’s “super tide” occasioned, I think, by the spring equinox (is my science correct??), the bore was in full flower.
