11 November 2012: Dartford to the Thames

It was an ideal day for this short ramble, which took us beneath wide blue skies and across open landscapes, through the “edgelands” where remnants of industry meet the surprisingly bucolic marshes.

 Lunch overlooking the Thames gave us a view of cormorants and gulls and other birds which some could identify, as well as a passing tug.

After lunch we were very surprised to see a large seal resting on the mud not far from the Dartford Bridge.

The return walk was less scenic, but 11 of us had enjoyed our walk, led by Jonathan, through this unusual landscape. Remembrance Day was marked with white poppies, sold by Jean in aid of Campaign Against the Arms Trade.
