Thursday 9th September – bike ***** – Around Felixstowe – sunny and hot.

After a cloudy start the sun soon appeared and the heatwave continued for another day with hopefully a foiling southerly in the afternoon. Usual morning at home, me exercises in the garden while Mag spends hours sorting out her seeds and young plants before I make a yummy salad. I get feed up of waiting for the wind to increase I ask Mag what she would like to do and she sail she would like to feed the fish in a small pond we regularly cycle past out Trimley way. So, we make a flask, pack a snack and head out on our bikes in the afternoon, very unusual for us! We deliver a letter to our son on the way before coming out on Trimley High Road near yet more road works, there is a huge amount of disruption here in Felixstowe with new housing being very sadly built everywhere:( Down Station Road to our favourite tree lined route, extra lovely today as very quiet and we don’t see anyone:) We soon get to the pretty little pond with water lilies and a huge willow tree and the large shoal of red finned Rudd are waiting for us:) Mag had bough some fish food recently from the Pound Shop and we loved feeding them, have never seen so many fish in this shallow pond, cant believe herons have not found them! Coming out at the lane leading down to Loompit Lake we sit on a bench for our cuppa enjoying stunning views over beautiful Suffolk countryside with even a glimpse of the River Orwell :) The highlight here is the many dragonflies flying overhead as well as loads of butterflies, I head down the lane with my camera snapping dragonflies while Mag chats to a nice man returning home after collecting blackberries:) I find some good blackberries too and we collect a few as a small herd of deer including youngsters walk across the field below, the first deer we have seen for ages :) Well rested we return over the huge footbridge to Trimley and home having been out for 2 hours 15 minutes covering 10 miles, a very pleasant afternoon. More changeable weather coming but not much wind so more walking and biking by the look of things!
