Monday 10th June - walk *** – River Orwell at Nacton – Rainy start then sunshine and showers, breezy too.

With strong winds from the north and a good tide for the Stour I was tempted by a trip to Wrabness but when it was time to leave it was gusting over 30 knots, 9 degrees and raining so I decided to give it a miss, having a drive around Felixstowe to take some gloomy pics to send to the TV weather! With time on my hands I posted over 50 pics on Facebook of Maggies lovely little garden and asked people to nname the flowers and plants, getting a really good response:) Then after breakfast and to my surprize the sun made a return and I even managed my exercises in the garden, I then decided to pack a picnic which I hadn’t expected to do today and with the wind in the north I decided to drive to Nacton shores as it would be sheltered. We parked at two and were walking down to the River Orwell through the woods when it absolutely tipped it down, luckily we could shelter under the trees! The rain cleared so we continued down to the very quiet Orwell which looked lovely with the tide high and the dark cloud moving downstream:) We turned right to go to our spot just past the thatched cottage near the tiny concrete dock. We had to walk along the narrow beach and scramble up to the very muddy footpath as we walked through the lovely woods. Out of the trees we saw loads of sheep with lots of lambs then down onto the beach again, with the tide very high we had to stop opposite Pin Mill for our picnic lunch and lovely it was too:) Then back through the woods to Nacton Shores with only one fisherman in sight as we walked a little way towards Levington, then home for a well deserved cuppa and some freshly made cheese scones:)
