No sandwich in Sandwich

It was a lovely sunny day on Sunday so I decided to cycle to Sandwich for lunch. I never got there. This was the reason:

National Cycle Route No.1

In the past, unfeeling cycle companions have accused me of making errors of judgment but this time I behaved sensibly -- I waited for a cyclist more stupid than me to arrive from the opposite direction and when I could see the water running over the top of his wheels I decided to turn around.

Mind you, if he hadn't have arrived at that moment it might have been me who would have been splashing through the thigh-high water. I could see that the flood only stretched for about half a mile.
