Welcoming Advent on my morning walk along the quayside at Wivenhoe, before starting another day working from home.
On a day of a tidal surge, on top of a high tide.
My last visit to the local pub before national lockdown 2.0 began in England on Thursday 5 November. Cheers to the other side!

the dangers, the power of shared laughter’
