Wednesday 7th – walk **** Alresford Circuit – sunny and warm.

After a mega 5 Star session yesterday at Point Clear where I didn’t get off the water until 7.30, we drove just down the road and stayed the night at one of our favourite spots, Alresford Church. Nice quiet night and woke to a sunny warm day with a bit of a breeze so I was not sure if I wanted to go windsurfing again today? Relaxing start, Mag even managed to do her exercises and not too many dog walkers either:) Then we have a lovely walk as if I do go windsurfing, I am in no hurry as it is not high water until late afternoon. We do the 2.25 Alresford circuit starting with the ruined church which burnt down in the 70’s. Then down the wheat field recently cut, through the wood to the quarry pits turning right the path leads down to the River Colne. The last time we did this route in the spring it was full of wild flowers but the summer is parched time with everything looking dead we much prefer the spring and summer! It looks like it might be good for blackberries in a few weeks:) We join the Wivenhoe trail by the Colne where the tide is out turning left, we walk to Alresford creek with loads of fast flying swifts! We sit on the seat at the creek before the slog up the lane back to the van where we decide to drop my damaged 7m to a sail repair loft in Brantham and with mates planning to windsurf at Bradfield and Wrabness I decide to head to Bradfield as it was closer and you get a better view for lunch which we enjoyed while watching a couple of families with the kids playing in the mud!
