For this afternoon you could clearly see right across The Wash from Hunstanton cliff tops to the funfair at Skegness.

A haze often masks the Lincolnshire side of the estuary, around 12 miles away, altogether.

But while things were a little hazy this afternoon, you could clearly pick out the roller coaster and other structures.

A cargo ship was plodding down the coast towards Boston or Long Sutton. The stump - aka the towering St Botolph’s Church at Boston could also be seen.
