We had a couple of lovely walks today. We went for breakfast in a local cafe, which was nice and then went for a walk around the lagoon. I don’t know how long the lagoon has been there, but from the way the harbour has silted up, it’s been quite a while. Anyhow, it makes for a lovely walk.
As you might expect we weren’t the only people out walking. In places, the paths are relatively narrow, so you can’t avoid being relatively close to people, not to worry about, but certainly to exchange pleasantries. Hence the Morning or hello title.
I have to say that we have had some really nice chats with people, nothing spectacular, just pleasant. In the afternoon, we did the other part of the harbour the North Sea wall that forms part of the sea defences for Chichester. I’ve been having a bit of an issue with my tripod, the one that I use for both photography, and for my spotter scope. I stopped to talk to another birder, to ask him about his tripod, he was more than happy to show me how he had jury rigged his spotter scope/tripod pairing.
Most people were delightful. Just occasionally we would say Hello or Good Morning to somebody only for them to completely ignore us. One elderly couple were coming toward us, and just as they were passing, we both said hello. They were both head down, one after the other, did not even look at us as they marched past. We both looked at each other and laughed. It certainly did not take away from the pleasure of the walk.
We have decided that it is a delightful area, and would be more than happy to return here for another holiday.
