I like to do a walk at lunchtime. If I am able to do a couple of miles I am happy. That gives me roughly 5 miles a day providing I can do both the morning and the lunchtime walk. If I am able to get out at the weekend as well, that is all to the good.
I have been walking up to the bridge over Forton lake around the small complex at the end of the bridge. That works out at about two miles. The bridge is closed at the moment;
They are doing repairs on the lifting mechanism. I hadn’t realised but apparently the bridge hasn’t lifted about the last five years. It’s lucky that there have been no reasonably sized boats trapped on the wrong side. The closure means that I am not getting near the two miles with the normal route. I had to change.
At the moment, I am doing a smaller loop than my normal morning walk, but following a similar path. It’s convenient because if I need to go in to the bank, as I did today, it is not really a diversion, merely a variation of the route. It also means that I can pop into any other shop if I need to. So, I’m not unhappy about the change, and will keep it as an option once the bridge has re-opened. I’d also like to see the bridge lifting as well.
Now that things are settling down, I may go back to my visit to Rowner Church. I have the Gosport Walking project to do there. I definitely do want to get my tripod strap problem sorted though. I haven’t for gotten about that.
