Tuesday 19th May - bike ***** - Felixstowe to Levington Marina via Trimley Marshes Sunny and hot.

Another hot and sunny day in Felixstowe today, even hotter tomorrow with temperatures expected to reach 27 degrees and after two windsurf foiling session in a row I decided against waiting for a sea breeze and get out on the bikes again. So, after a video chat with Grandson Arlo and doing my exercises in the back garden with the Swifts making a welcome return after disappearing for a few days? With a salad packed we leave home around 12.30, out along the Trimley Road, over the dual carriageway then left our bikes over the gate and take the footpath down towards Felixstowe docks. Reaching the long track to the bird reserve at Trimley Marshes where I cycle along the River Orwell path towards Levington with the tide pretty low. We stop at the mouth of the dead tree lagoon right by the river for our yummy lunch. It is great to see boats back out on the Orwell, several yachts making slow progress in the light airs plus boats out fishing for bass:) I had already spotted Avocets in the winter flood where all the bird hides are still closed with geese and oyster catchers out on the mud bank with cormorants flying past. Time to continue onto Loompit lake as two coaster head up to Ipswich. There was several family groups enjoying the weather on the beach and we stopped by Loompit for awhile to watch the trout jumping, luckily the algae seems to have gone so no dead fish:) There was ducks and geese with youngsters and a man fly fishing, he caught two while we sat there and released them to fight another day :) Then onto the marina which was a hive of activity with boat owners getting their yachts ready for the summer season:) Lets hope we are allowed back windsurfing here soon, hopefully later this week:) Then out of the marina and across the fields to our avenue of trees eventually arriving at Morisons where Mag wanted to buy some plants but there was a big que so we gave it a miss and headed home. So, another great bike ride despite the heat and we were knackered perhaps we are doing too much and so tucked into a cuppa with a rock cake. With it being hot tomorrow, it could be a take it easy day before hopefully a couple of windsurfing sessions on Friday and Saturday!!!

PS the large herd of deer seem to have disappeared, perhaps they are hiding in the woods giving birth????
