Tuesday 4th January – walk *** – The Dip to Felixstowe Ferry – cloudy with light rain and cold.

The mild weather of late has sadly gone as the temperature drops during the day with some light rain too. With loads of flood warnings today and with high water at Bawdsey at 12.18 we decided to drive to The Dip and walk to Felixstowe Ferry to check it out. I did my exercises first, the first time for several days before setting off at 11.30 and were lucky that the light rain had stopped. It was nice and quiet as we set off along the prom towards The Ferry with very little beach left! The tide was still whizzing up the River Deben, in fact high water was not reached until at least an hour after the advertised time! The jetty had disappeared under water at the Ferry and some of the boat yard was under water as we walked around with me snapping pics. We had a quick walk out along the Deben path to see the delict boats, my favourite yellow boat was only just visible! We could not get back through the boat yard now due to the tide so took another route back to the jetty with Winkles Café now surrounded by water! Back across the golf course with the wind behind us with loads of birds out on the shingle bar, not that there was much of that left! Home for lunch and to make a real fire while afternoon TV:)

PS - managed to get one of my pics on the lovely Chris Pages About Anglia weather today :)
