206/366 A Glorious Day

In one way, it hasn’t been a very successful walking week. I didn’t get out at all on Friday or Saturday, they were very lazy days. On the other hand I have closed up over 20 miles. I know, that’s not many, but it’s enough for the week to keep my Walk 1000 on track.

Weather wise, there hasn’t been anything which would have stopped me from going out. Cold, and a bit windy on occasion but no rain, although one morning had the potential to get a bit misty. All of the walks were very enjoyable – once I’ve got up and got out.

Monday to Friday my walks take place between 0600 – 0700. It is very nice at the weekend to be able to have a choice as to when I go out. Normally, I choose not to go early in the morning – as you might expect. Today’s walk was between 1200-1800. I started out with the intention of doing my normal 3 mile route, but whilst the air was slightly chilled it was so pleasant that I thought I would extend it a bit.

I went down the old railway track, now a very good walkway & cycle track to the Iron Bridge, this is a very photogenic area. I returned to my normal route via a slightly different path, having added around a mile to the walk.

I usually head for the waterfront, you never know I might see a ship coming in, now I could check the QHM timings – I receive the email everyday telling me what are the main ship movements of the day, but today I’ll take my chance. As it happens, apart from the Gosport ferry, and a couple of small private boats, not a dickybird. Oh well, that is the luck of the draw. I did have a socially distanced chat with a couple of people; Ray, whom I say hello to every once in a while. He lives in the last tower block.

Ray told me about the Kingfisher that has taken up residence near the ramparts. We walked down to have a look if we could see it. There we met Tony. Tony’s a bit of a twitcher, and is quite socially conscious. He had been clearing out some glass that some vandals had thrown in to an area of water. The consensus was that we really do not understand why people do that.

It was a very nice walk, and very nice to get back and have a couple of tea.

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.
