I really didn’t want to get up this morning. Bed is so comfortable. But then you have to. As usual, I looked out the bedroom window. The main thing was no rain, no excuse to not go for a walk. I get dressed and go and do 30 sit ups, do they help? I really don’t know, but my stomach muscles feel stronger, and it only takes a couple of minutes.

I get my gadgets ready, the camera monopod with the dual bracket on. One side has the mobile phone holder, the other my hand held anemometer , which is pretty much a weather station in one small package. On my phone I check the tide state for Portsmouth harbour and the weather on gosportweather.co.uk mainly checking the temperature and pressure.

I turn on the Baofeng and set it to scan mode so I can hear the various things; GB3IW, QHM Southampton VTS, the pilots, and occasionally the coastguard. Usually, it’s QHM giving permission for the Normandie or Mon St Michelle to enter harbour.

This morning as I step out I sense that there’s a little bit of a breeze, but although uniform the cloud is quite high and not likely to rain – it doesn’t. The Morning Chorus is really letting rip, it’s very loud with some birds very distinct, part of me wishes I knew which birds.

The walk is enjoyable and uneventful, I take a few pictures and give my weather report (not forecast) to the #Breakfastclub on GB3IW, which runs from 0615 to about 0700 Monday to Friday. I tweet the pictures. I walk home, it is about a two mile round trip, just over 6000 steps. Always a good start to the day.

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.
