Sunday Morning Stroll

After yesterday’s wind and rain, todays blue skies have been a delightful change. I had to get out for a walk. Here’s most of my route today;

It was lovely. We have quite a few blue plaques around the town. There’s one that I had seen not long after moving here, but it had disappeared, and then today I just happened to look and there it was. It celebrates Henry Cort who developed a new process “Puddling” for managing wrought iron. I must do something here with other plaques

I walked down to the end of the Haslar Marina Pier wall, from where I did a brief Facebook Live. I walked round to the small lake by the Gosport Ramparts, I stopped on the way to have a chat with one of the towns street cleaners. I see him quite often. It’s nice to be able to say to them “thank you for looking after the town”. I saw this Cormorant sunning themselves at the side of the small lake. I must admit I did get a little too close to them, and they scooted off across the lake. I’d loved to have taken a picture of it, but was too slow. I was sorry I had frightened and disturbed them. They didn’t seem too disturbed though. By the time I’d walked to the other side of the of the lake the bird was back in the same spot, wings raised, gently wafting backwards and forwards.

I walked on round to the Cockle ponds, where I met a local Facebook Friend and we had a brief chat. The cockle ponds are a delightful little area. This group of Canada Geese were making good use of it, have a very placid float;

Today, they would be sharing the lake with members of the Gosport Model sailing club. I pretty much ended the walk near Walpole Park, where this sight met me;

Really frustrating. Do you get this where you are?

If you read my facebook post you may see some of the pictures used here again. Apologies for the duplication.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
