Friday 25th April

Update by Heather
The River Deben was the area in which we walked on this lovely bright sunny day. Three of us were able to come along and enjoy the wildlife as well as the walk. It makes it so much better when the sun is shining.

We had less problems with blisters, and noticed how we walked through any minor aches and pains. There were times when we felt tired, but again after a while felt fine.

We saw a bull in a field, who really looked as if he had either just serviced a large herd or was old and past it. Further along the walk there was a small herd of heffers looking very happy!

The riverside was beautiful, with the tide just coming in, there were a lot of wading birds on the shore line, the usual gulls and some curlews. I must admit, I'm not very good at recognising sea birds.

Lunch was enjoyed at a small grassy area just beside the river, boots and socks off to air and cool our feet.

This is the first time of walking this year that we have met so many people doing the same thing. a sure sign that summer is on it's way.

We managed just under 15 miles and were glad to be back at the cars. However, after a few minutes I think that we could have done more, but time was of the essence.
