Thursday 4th February - walk **** - Landguard circuit – all sorts, sunny
periods, fog and then rain.
We had all sorts of weather today here in Felixstowe, foggy, low cloud,
sunny periods and even rain late in the afternoon and we always aim to get
out for a walk or bike every day so after a morning at home, me doing my
exercises while Mag did a mega cook/bake up. I then made a chicken sandwich
and we took the van down to The Manor for our usual walk around Landguard
Nature Reserve, managing to get a free spot by the caravans. As my much
love Fujifilm 18 – 135 gave up yesterday and with my camera body on its
last legs I gave the pension a bashing last night managing to replace both
items, can’t wait for them to arrive. So, I took my big 100 – 400 lenses
with me today as I definitely can’t go anywhere without my camera! The
morning fog had gone and there was an interesting sky as we set off along
the footpath to the view point with not many people about, always a plus:)
Only spotted one rabbit and the only birds seen were a few gulls but a
container ship came in while we were passing the docks, always good as it
looks higher than we were! We got to the view point in time to get some
pics of the tugs manoeuvring the ship into its berth and got some nice
pics, you can never have enough dock shots! Then back along the River
Orwell to our spot on the old jetty for our yummy chicken sandwich watching
the river action. The pilot boat and the bouy moving vessel passed!
Despite the light airs it was a little on the chilly side so we continued
on our way across the reserve getting back to the van just before the rain
started! One more mild day tomorrow before some bad weather arrives with
the possibility of snow !
