Thursday 13th May - walk **** - Martlesham Church circuit cloudy with very light showers.


After two pretty full on windsurfing this week, sailing for the best part of eight hours and covering 80 miles I was pleased to have a lighter wind day today although the easterly breeze did tease for a while. Shame it was cloudy with some very light showers, it was time to do my exercises again before making a roll and heading out in the van with Notcutts garden centre the destination so Mag could spend her voucher. We made a detour to Martlesham Church where we sat in the very pretty graveyard for lunch surrounded by many blooms including green akanet, comfrey, dandy lions, campion as well as the trees with a variety of green leaves, cloudy but at least the showers were staying away! We then decide to walk from here and head down to Martlesham Creek past the impressive Martlesham Hall, a pond with moorhen chicks in the reeds with loads of hedgerow birds flitting about! There are two machines slowly moving across a field with six people laying on their stomachs thinning out seedlings, probably Eastern European away from home on low wages, you just have to admire their work ethic:) The fields are all being worked around here as we reach the creek directly opposite Kyson Point and with the tide very high there were even some yachts in the creek! We take the creek path covered in dead gorse with a kestrel hunting overhead. Past the moorings, through the lovely old woods with bluebells and back to van. It was then over to Woodbridge, I pick up a sail from the repair loft before heading over to the garden centre, Mag was underwhelmed by the overpriced plants and said never again. We then took the country lanes back to Felixstowe for our usual cuppa and cake:)
