IF YOU THINK YOU CAN COME DOWN IN YOUR "SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER" SUIT AND STAY CLEAN.......THINK AGAIN !!!!   ALOT OF THE TIME OUR CLOTHES ARE SO MUDDY WE HAVE TO LEAVE THEM DOWN THE HOLE.......IVE EVEN HAD TO WALK BACK TO THE CAR IN JUST MY PANT'S AND WATERPROOF BIB AND BRACES........ IT WAS THE MIDDLE OF WINTER AND MINUS 2,   AND THE STEAM WAS JUST POURING OFF MY HOT BODY !!!

OVER THE YEAR'S IVE SEEN 100's OF PEOPLE TRYING TO DIG ON THE 4-SHORE !!! (MUDLARK'S) THE OLD AND THE NEW...... I CAN HONESTLY SAY "IVE ONLY SEEN A COUPLE OF THEM DO IT WELL",   AS IT'S SO HARD (COMPACTED BY SHIP'S FOR 100's OF YEARS) AND YOU'VE GOTTA BE FAST TO BEAT THE INCOMING TIDE !!! IF YOU THINK YOUR HANDY WITH A SPADE IN THE GARDEN.... PRACTICE BY DIGGING THROUGH YOUR CONCRETE PATH FOR A THAMES EFFECT !!!!
GET DIRTY WITH THAMES AND FIELD !!!!!!
