357/366 A lunchtime walk

I had to go to the Dentist. After I came out I thought I would go for a bit of a lunchtime stroll. A difference between when I go for my Morning walk and lunchtime is there are a lot more people around. For example this chap was at the Falklands Gardens, he was feeding the pigeons and the starlings, there were a lot of them all chomping away. It was a real delight to see. The pigeons were very happy. The starlings slightly less so.

You also get to see things like this. This is HSL102, High Speed Launch 102 – RAF Rescue boat. In 1941 she rescued 38 downed RAF Aircrew. She is the only one of this type to survive. It was lovely to see her, and the first time that I have done so.

I swung past the cockle ponds.

It appeared that there was quite a large event going on – I don’t know if this was a normal weekday event, or part of the centenary celebrations. It seemed like a very relaxed event, there were people all around the edge guiding the boats. Thinking about it, I didn’t see anybody with radio control units and the yachts all had large vanes on the back making me think they were guided by the wind. I asked one of the participants what the class was, he responded “Alpha”. I just looked it up, it’s called the Vaned A Class. It seemed much more relaxed that the laser class on Saturday. The boats we’re much larger and grander, with scrubbed an polished decks.

It was a very pleasant walk.

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.
