Krikey ... what about the golf course and the log cabin ... are they under water?

The water at the log cabin is up to the lawn in front and the golf club is protected by a dyke, although a bit of water is starting to seep through the walls...

Thanks for that Mike. Never seen the river that high and it got pretty full at times. Suppose you will find all kinds of flotsam and jetsam as the water levels subside; trees, dead animals and the like washed up on the beach. Demonstrates the awesome power of nature.
Kind regards
Gordon
