Walking the Essex way

Walking is something that I love to do and the countryside is right by our doorstep. My friend and I walk most day's. Last week we only managed one day, Paula and Her Husband went to Witby for the goth festival...... Hubby and I also visited our friends Fiona and Gino in Lowestoft, The first two day's it rained and on the day that we were coming back we had lovely sunshine.

Fiona takes me on a walk to the old high street in Lowestoft, lovely to walk and see the old road....we walk through the Park where bluebells were in profusion, with the sunshine filtering through the trees it looked magical, we walked on to the sea front where the camping site stood, its name quite apt the (((most easterly campsite))) very cold and very windy, so I pass on the walk along the seawall, by then I was shivering.

We walk back through the park and on to the Navy memorial gardens.... Again a beautiful garden and a beautiful thatched cottage in the grounds, there was this beautiful bridge too, that was presented during Queen Victoria reign...
In all a great last day, what a difference it makes when the sun is shining. In the afternoon we came home laden with a few goodies the girls entrusted to bring Portuguese cakes at the Madeira cafe where we had ((pregos)) steak sandwich Madeira style in (((bolo do caco))) its a flat bread very traditional in Madeira...Thank you Fiona and Gino for having us and making us feel so welcomed....
