Friday 28th October – bike **** – Around Felixstowe including lunch ‘Emily’ – Sunny periods.

What a fantastic start to the day, after yesterday’s lovely sunrise which I photographed out of the back bedroom window, I checked again this morning at 7.15 and it looked very promising. I quickly dressed grabbed my camera and jogged to the clifftop at the end of our road arriving just in time to capture some beautiful pictures, nature is just amazing, just so mild too, it got to 20 degrees today:) After watching the sunrise above the horizons I headed for home to sort out my pics before posting them on several sites on Facebook as well as the local weather on both the BBC and ITV. I was lucky enough to get one on BBC’s Look East but sadly not credited :(
After two days of windsurfing, I was hoping once again to go to Levington but the winds in the morning were fairly light, it had also clouded over and with my wetsuit still wet from yesterday so I decided against going today even though Robert had messaged to say that he was going to Levington where he was joined by Michael, in the end the wind picked up at 12.20 and they had a good session but never mind I missed it, looks like next week is looking promising!
So not have to think about windsurfing I could relax in the back garden doing my exercises before packing a picnic and heading out on our bikes at 12.20, it’s the first time since last Friday! Once again, we head over to see ‘Emily’ at Falkenham Church going the usual way past the park at The Grove to Gulpher Road and down Marsh Lane and the breeze had definitely picked up! Then sitting on the sea wall with his scope looking down Kings Fleet was old birdwatching friend Roger who had had a health scare but was once again fit enough to be out and about on his electric bike enjoying his first love, nature. We stopped for a nice chat before continuing to our bench at Falkenham Church, once again very quiet and peaceful. We had a lovely relaxing lunch before heading for home via Kirton to Trimley to the lane that leads to Loompit lake on the banks of the River Orwell near Levington. Mag stops at the bench as I whizz down the lane to check out the windsurfing conditions. The tide was very high and I spot Robert and Michael foiling in the distance! We then continue along the tree lined path which is covered in fallen Autumn leave all the way to Felixstowe docks. Mag heads for home while I detour to the view point, then along the prom and home for a welcome cuppa and cake. A top bike ride, out for 3 hours covering over 17 miles:)
