497 Gosport’s Golden Mile

We went for a stroll today, along Gosport’s Golden Mile. This stretches from the cafeteria at the diving museum at the western end of Stokes Bay, along to the Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service (GAFIRS).

It was grey and cold, with a gusting wind from the East, but no rain. For the first half of the walk from GAFIRS up to the diving museum, we were walking with the wind. The promenade wasn’t busy, but there were a few people. Usually they are with their dogs.

The dogs are always an opportunity for a conversation. But beyond have it a laugh at a couple dachshunds that were romping around, we didn’t really speak to anybody.

The sea wall along the prom has taken a real battering and is falling to bits in places. Gosport Borough Council are spending money doing a temporary fix, but I think it is the minimum to ensure the integrity of the defences. I think they are doing the correct thing, blocking off areas as they become damaged and are planning a long term fix. This does make sense to me as long as they start the project as soon as they can and don’t let it linger. It is unsightly, and they will not be getting the best out of the area.

But they were working busily today, doing some buttressing.

The walk back was in to the wind, It really was quite bracing. But, it was very nice to get out for a walk.
