It’s Saturday, we decided that there weren’t any house jobs we felt we had to do. So, we’ve had a a bit of a relaxing day. That’s OK, I won’t complain about that. Not long before lunch, I suggested that it would be quite nice if we went back to the waterfront at Titchfield Haven. I had an ulterior motive, partially. I wanted to shoot some video in what are some quite wild conditions. As you can see from the photo, not massive waves, but enough to show that there was quite a breeze blowing. The wind was driving the intermittent showers quite strongly, the rain felt like needles hitting my face. I have to say though, that I was enjoying being out.
I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the 30 or so minutes that I spent on the waterfront, there’s a bit of a shingle bank that is walkable when the tide is low, so I took the opportunity to get out as far as I could – not far, only about a hundred yards, if that. It gave me an opportunity to speak to a couple of the surfers as they were preparing to go out. They were friendly and keen to speak. One had only been doing it for a couple of weeks. Wasn’t going out very far, but was keen to get out.
There’s something to be said, I find, for being out in wild weather. There’s just something about it that really appeals to me. Lunch was lovely, Tuna Mayo rolls, making the whole expedition a very enjoyable experience.
