Sunday 24th March - walk *** – The Grove circuit, Felixstowe – Mainly cloudy and breezy.

After yesterdays full-on 25 mile session at a very breezy Levington I was going to give today a miss especially with loads of wind coming next week but in the end I could not resist a look and drove over to the marina for a look. I arrived at 10.30 and with the tide high and the wind coming from the WNW it did not look very inviting, the wind was cross off which made it hard to judge how strong it was and there was a big swell running down the middle of the river, it was gloomy too so after taking a few pics I decided not to bother and head for home. I did my exercises and then packed a picnic, I wanted to but a torx screw driver for my foil so after a quick stop at Homebase we parked up at The Grove, a small wooded area in Felixstowe just past two. The wind had eased down and it was not as cold as we had expected:) Though Abbey Grove to our bench in the small green to enjoy our lunch with the rooks being particularly noisy now that nest building is in full swing! Well rested we continue on through the woods, we are in between flowers at the moment so not much colour although the wild garlic is looking promising for later. We then hear some farm machinery working in a near-by field so detour right on a path we haven’t walked before to see a huge machine harvesting sugar beet! Then back across the football pitches to check out a new tarmac footpath leading from the football changing room and yes the workman ship is shocking not helped by the fact something heavy has driven over it breaking a lot of the timber shuttering and cracking the tarmac in places! I cant see this lasting long, probably cost a lot of money too! Then home to watch the Ladies Rugby team down to 13 players at one point well beat Italy!
