[edit] Expedition

It was May 1st and the weather was very sunny but there was a cold wind blowing in from the North Sea. The traffic this Royal Wedding weekend was light so the journey to Waldringfield was painless. Finding the hashpoint was not hard. There was a public footpath beside the estuary. This headed inland and across a wheat field (a guess as barley, oats and millet look similar when this size). The hashpoint was 20 metres off the public footpath and reachable because it was possible to step between the young wheat seedlings.

With half the Norwich graticule in the sea, expeditions are often not possible but when the point is right, the expeditions can be particularly nice with diverse terrain and in this case a pub. Wonderful.
