It;s not that the weather has been all over the place, it hasn’t. It has been windy and wet, and occasionally a bit cold. To me, this isn’t rough weather, it has character. I enjoy it.
Walking westwards along Stokes Road I was walking into the wind. It’s been very brisk all weekend. We had the branch episode at the Weald and Downland, and yesterday , there were bits all over the garden. When I went for today’s walk a big tree had been blown over near Walpole Park.
I’m trying to work out how they are going to fill the cockle pond. I now know the reason why it has been emptied, and it makes sense. What I don’t know is how the pond is filled.
There wasn’t much going on in the harbour, the Victoria of Wight came in, and there were a couple of yacht’s moving about. The stretch from the waterfront back home is not the most interesting part of the walk (I went anti-clockwise).
It was a very pleasant walk.
