The sky was clear and the air was cold and frosty as we headed down to Fludgers Pub on Felixstowe’s seafront, where a group of eight hardy IOGers had gathered to see the sun rise over the sea. A small band of cloud was lying along the horizon so it was a little late arriving and it wasn’t until 7.40 that we saw the first proper glimmer of sun emerge into view. However, within 5 minutes it was gleaming across the water.
We headed north along the prom and onto the beach. It was such a hard frost that even the shingle was firm to walk on today, but we soon warmed up as we made our way along the promenade towards Felixstowe Ferry.
We then headed into the town with our tummies rumbling. So the next stop was Ruby’s Kitchen tearoom where we all enjoyed a rather nice breakfast.
And returned back to the seafront.
