Averting Disaster

 I've just cycled to Wicken Fen  to do some more research for my current painting 'Dreamtime'.

I found a likely spot to make a watercolour sketch where the reeds had parted and I could see  the river. I noticed a post stuck into the ground by the water's edge and  decided to lean my bicycle against it.

While  sorting out my folding chair I heard a creaking noise and on turning around saw my bike and the post slowly disappearing  into the river.

Luckily I managed to hoist the bike, the post (and myself) back in the opposite direction, but it was a close shave. The things we do for Art!
