North London visit a Vineyard
On 22nd October it was decided to visit Mersea Island and have lunch at the Vineyard cafe on the east of the island, some of us having tried it once before and liking it.
Ten of us were led by the indomitable Richard and a nice day and nice roads gave us a good run there through Ongar, Leaden Roding, Chelmsford and Malden.
The food was really good and we sat outside in the sun with the vineyards nearby.
A lovely place.
Next we rode around Abberton reservoir and stopped for afternoon tea in Finchingfield.
The route from the reservoir was Tiptree, Coggeshall, Bocking and Wethersfield. At Finchingfield Chris treated us to tea and cake.. A great day out..
