On the 2nd I took the boys for a good run over the ‘Secret Fields’ as it had been a couple of days since we ventured outdoors. The skies were bright blue and there was a nip in the air but we all enjoyed stretching our legs.
On the morning of the 4th the boys and I took a good hike, of just under 4.5 miles, from Wakering Marina. The weather was overcast and breezy but we had a great time. I have written about this hike in more detail, and lots more photos, elsewhere on this blog so click HERE if you would like to read more.
On the 6th we had a short wander along the beach at Shoebury. It was pretty windy and the boys enjoyed swimming in the choppy sea. I did not take many photos of this trip but did take a few videos of the boys swimming.
On the 8th we visited Shoebury East Beach at low water and walked a ways out across the mud as the tide was out. The skies were clear and the wind was cold as we wandered across the mudflats but we did not care. I love walking out at low water, something quite scary yet calming about walking where in a few hours you would be under water.
