Circumnavigations: Mersea Island

Mersea Island provides an interesting tidal challenge: at low water there is only mud in the creeks, at high water the island can be cut off from the 'Mainland' when the road floods. Local knowledge from Elizabeth Cannon: "The trick is to get to the road (known as “the Strood” at exactly high tide. That way, you get pulled up to the Strood by the tide, hopefully paddle over the road, then get pulled away from the Strood by the tide." We reckon a little research may be useful on this one to avoid a portage!
