529 – Random Conversations

Whilst I haven’t totalled it up, I fairly confident that I’ve done more than my targeted 35 miles this week. Less than 36, but more than 35. Over the week it has been relatively straightforward getting to 30, those last five miles were the slightly more difficult goal. It’s todays walk that allowed me to reach my goal.

I was on Clayhall lane when a bloke came up to me and asked me where the light aircraft that was flying over head could have come from. I replied that it was likely that they came from either the civilian airfield at the old HMS Daedalus (actually I said Dauntless. I was probably surprised by the approach). He went to tell me he was a scientist working on historical research, that was a reservist just visiting the area, and that last week he had been talking to Boris Johnson. He was either telling the truth or delusional. He sounded quite rational.

The whole conversation took place whilst we were walking around the detention centre and along the pier wall. He told me that he was out for some exercise and was walking for town minutes and running for ten. He said good day and then took off. He left just as we were about to pass the front entrance of the detention centre. I continued my walk along Haslar Road past what was Haslar Hospital. Both sad that the hospital closed down, and happy that the buildings are being preserved if converted into flats.

I’ve walked past Haslar Royal Naval Cemetery quite a few times. I keep on intending to go in to pay my respects – I really must do that, I’lol make a point of putting a walk to one side for that purpose.

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.
