We spent a couple of hours working on the front of the house. It involved lopping some branched off a tree, and clearing up some bits growing out of the wall. In the past, I’ve talked about the kind of jobs I’m happy doing in the garden. Having finished that we had a bit of a break and then I decided that I wanted to go for a walk.
There’s always a decision to be made when I’m walking – where to go. A few weeks ago, I wanted to pay a visit to Gilkicker to see if anything was happening. I also wanted to walk down a footpath along Green Lane.
The GAFIRS Lifeboat was out, and the coastguard helicopter flew overhead, out towards Bembridge. I wonder they were responding to a call? If they were, I hope it went OK. I have to say though, that the view from the beach was just lovely.
I went along to Gilkicker – no change. So I continued my walk up to one of my favourite viewing spots – The Haslar Sea Wall. There was one of the big CMA CGM container ships coming in.
From there I went along Haslar Road. As usual, it was a hot and dry road to walk along.
but the walk along the Esplanade made up for it. Not that anything in particular happened to make it good. I made my way home from there. It was a very pleasant 6 miles. An enjoyable walk.
