256/366 The rewards of a walk

I don’t think that I should be rewarded for going out on the walks. But, sometimes things happen, and I think of it as a reward.

I won’t deny that one of the main reasons I went out for a walk today was to visit my Jelly Fish in the Cockle Ponds. I wanted to see how they were doing. There weren’t as many as I thought there would be. I am assuming from the size that they are youngsters. I don’t know what will happen to them, I’m not sure if they have a route out to the sea or whether they are stuck in the pond. A concern is that the pond is drained every so often, I don’t know when that is due to happen next, but what happens to them then – who knows?

Today, They seem to be in fine fettle. Still from the looks of it mainly concentrated in the western end of the pond. They seemed to be quite mobile. I wonder if they are preparing to escape?

You can imagine my excitement then to see one of these flapping about. There were a few of these, from quite small up to probably about two inches long. I had no idea what they were. I thought they were another Jelly Fish. Turns out, they are a Sea Hare or Sea Slug. I had to resort to Facebook to find out what it was. The group to which I posted the query took about 5 minutes to respond, which was pretty good. I suppose this comes of paying a bit more attention to the site. Absolutely fascinating. I shall continue to observe. This is the first of my rewards or today’s walk.

From the cockle ponds I followed my normal route. When I arrived at the waterfront I strolled along the promenade as I normally do. I could hardly miss the collection of what I think are classic scooters, I don’t if they are really are classic, but they are clearly well loved machines. This is my second reward.

Then of course there is the walk itself, which as usual I enjoyed very much. Which is sufficient reward in it’s own right.
