Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes. We had a lovely walk around Mersea Island.
The weather was just right , occasionally sunny but cold although I did have to take my coat off at around 6.5 miles as I was starting to get too warm.
We had to take a detour along the beach on the seaward side of the island as the tide was still in so we could not walk along the beach.
This added just over a mile to the total distance. We walked a total of 13.58 miles / 21.85 km.
