The "picnic in the Park" is now an Annual Event in the calendar of Maldon U3A.
This year it was at Heybridge Basin as it was last year - however this year it started very warm at 23 degrees C and with a very full car park. The forecast was "Showers in the afternoon" but the Picnic started in fine style with no hint of rain.

Mick had arranged for us to use the private land behind the black wooden shed - thanks for that as seats were provided.
Most people brought a Lunch style Picnic which was consumed with the odd bottle of vino.

Hello, what is this approaching from Maldon?
Why it is this scarce item - RAIN!
A quick run for the Willow Trees or the brave ones sat it out.
That shower had passed so maybe it was time to make a run for the car?

Notice the black cloud overhead.
Thank you Dorothy Denmark & the Social Committee for suggesting an enjoyable Picnic whilst it lasted.
