268/366 A week of walking (almost)

The almost is that I went for a tun on Monday, it was a bank holiday, so I went early, and ended up not going for a walk. Apart from that, I went for a walk every morning this week.

Sometimes it can be a struggle to get up. But for some reason it has not been the case. Has it been because the weather has been lovely, or is it because I am keen to check on the progress of the Jelly Fish? Who knows.

As a result of the motivation in the morning, the writings has been relatively straightforward (I won’t say easy) but there are times when the worlds flow.

When I go out in the mornings, I do the weather report (as I’ve discussed before) to the #Breakfastclub. I adjusted my route to include a trip past the Cockle Pond so that I can do an update on the Jelly Fish. One the members of the morning radio event (The #Breakfastclub) G6RTE Jo, made a comment that it was being talked about. That made me smile. The thing is, that I am not just doing it for fun, I’m doing it because I’m interested. If my reports entertain then I am happy with that. This morning for example, I saw the biggest jelly fish yet.. Easily five inches across. From the way it was laying on the surface, I thought it was dead, but I gave it a gently prod with my gadget stick and it started moving.

Getting ready to go out for my morning walk is a bit of a process I check two apps; the tide app which does as it says plus gives me the phase of the moon, and gosportweather.co.uk. This is a very professionally run website that gives me an initial view of the weather outside, especially the temperature and pressure. I attach my hand anemometer to my gadget stick (tripod or monopod depending on the time of year) make sure I have my phone and my house keys and set off.

One of the first things that usually sense, apart from the temperature of course, is the morning chorus. I love hearing the multitude of birds, well, ok mostly sparrow, letting rip and enjoy it for a good part of my journey. I prefer not to have it interrupted by the sound of people; cars, lorries etc. But it happens. I pretty much follow the same route every morning and end up taking pictures of the same thing. I do look for different images, but that’s where my lack of artistic sense lets me down, but even then I sometimes take a picture which makes me think I really like that.

I have the choice of going clockwise or anti around the route. At the moment it’s clockwise, mostly because I want to get to the waterfront for the early dawn light. I’m probably going to change that in the next few weeks. I recently added about a mile to the walk, taking in South Street and Stoke Road. I have definitely broken the anxiety I used to feel at needing to be home by 0700. Now I quite regularly get home between 10 and 20 past seven.

I must admit, I do enjoy my cup of tea when I get home.

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.
