New Thames Estuary Path to open
This summer sees the opening of a new 29 mile (47Km) footpath called the Thames Estuary Path running through the South Essex Marshes. The path officially opens in July and will link Tilbury Town to Leigh on Sea in Essex.
Well, I have to say the weather hasn’t been on our side so far this year. Even the most enthusiastic walkers could be forgiven for staying at home. But it can’t last forever, and for those of you just waiting for a good reason to do more walking we might have found the perfect motivation.
I love the New Year. I always feel a sense of calm after the mad rush towards Christmas when there seems to be a million things to do on an impossible deadline, then Christmas passes and I feel a bit as though I’ve swum through some rapids and emerged into a beautiful calm river.
We all get stressed on occassions, as a parent of teenage children I get stressed quite often! But interestingly one of my children made a very smart observation this weekend - she asked how come when there is tension in the family it goes away quicker if we're on a walk than if we're at home.
