PPhotos taken on walks taken over the Christmas holiday week. Maldon, Mersea, Flatford Mill (with friends) and Brightlingsea.
I’m attempting to revive the blog – so much is going unrecorded but life is going at such a pace that it’s hard to stop and put it on the blog.
This weekend – Matt and Ben spent Saturday at Fellowship Afloat, a Christian-run sailing and activity centre just down the coast at Tollesbury. Ben is hoping to volunteer there and this was their start-the-season weekend for volunteers. Ben and Mip had a Sea Cadet competition (drill and piping) on Sunday, but the rest of us went back to Fellowship Afloat for the morning meetings and for lunch. It was lovely meeting some of the people who work there now, and some who began it all 50 years ago, all with an interest in sailing.
They also have a climbing wall which the children enjoyed and we walked along the edge of the marshes. It’s a beautiful place, and at least one of my Grandfather’s old barges is “retired” in the mud there.
