If want a quiet walk go out early in the morning along the Orwell,there is no place in the area like it.I have walked,camped,swam in the Orwell,watched wildlife and sometimes go on the Orwell with my kayak.I have been on or about the Orwell for 60 years,i like to think of it as my river.

I had the priviledge to sail Gladys as navigator from St Cattherines dock to poole and back on several occassions with Dick Creswell while I aws a Master with Weston Shipping and would be glad to hear from anyone else who may have been on these voyages. I'm now operations manager with Western Ferries on the upper Clyde at Dunoon.I had some wonderfull times on the Thames Estuary and sailed in and out of the Orwell on many occassions. I believe a very good friend of mine from those days Clive is now Dock Master at Ipswich.

The Brocken Spectre appears when a low sun is behind the object shaddowed onto the cloud below - more frequently seen by climbers in high places looking down onto low cloud in the valley below (frequently early mornings when the air is still). The coloured rings are the rainbow effect of light being distorted on the drops of water in the cloud.
