Wednesday 10th February - walk ***** - Felixstowe Ferry Heavy snow and sunny afternoon :).


I was not going to post a blog today as we only had a short walk but it was such a big day for me, I decided to write this.
In the morning we had heavy snow here again in Felixstowe, coming through in waves which I enjoyed in our backroom doing my exercises while watching the hungry birds on the feeders with Mag having another bake up in the kitchen. Then amazingly we started to get some glimpses of blue sky so after a late lunch we headed out in the van for the first time in several day, the residential roads are still icy but the main routes in town are mainly free as we headed down to Felixstowe Ferry, the snow looks so much better set against a blue sky:) I wanted to stop at the cliff top car park to take some pics but the entrance was blocked with snow! Also, the road across the golf course was narrower than usual because of snow but it was quiet so no problems. The Martello tower on the golf course looked wonderful in a sea of snow set off by a blue sky! We managed to park just past the small chapel and walked to the River Deben with Bawdsey beach covered in snow. We then walked around the Ferry boatyard with many of the small tender dinghies full of water, with several frozen solid! We meet the Swains out for a walk to check their yacht and stopped for a chat before checking out the row of delict house boats before returning to the van.
It was then a short trip to the Grove Medical Centre for my covid jab, they have been going strong despite the bad weather of late! To say we were impressed is an understatement, a whole host of volunteers helped you park and ushered you into the room for the injection, which was over in a flash in a very professional manner before you had to wait 15 minutes before leaving. The whole thing was probably over in 20 minutes and I cannot fault it, just fantastic. So I can only hope that this is the beginning of the end to this terrible virus and am feeling upbeat at the moment, so well done everyone involved and a big thankyou from me:)
