I did my usual morning walk, which was fine. I even took the header picture not really expecting much of it, but really I quite like it. I think it’s better in B&W. It’s the lines, the textures and shading, all seem quite pleasing to my eyes. There’s even a degree of symmetry in the windows.
I also managed to get out for my lunchtime walk. As I was walking along the esplanade, I can remember thinking “Yes, I think that’ll be a good subject for the blog tonight.” The trouble is that as I am sat here, I cannot for the life of me remember what the “It” was. Now, I am wondering if I need to start carrying a pen and notebook.
Part of the problem is that I have been here before, then I forget to take the notebook with me. I think that I need to start carrying my man bag with me whenever I go out, and get in to the habit of writing down, not my thoughts, just ideas.
The weather for both walks was lovely. The high street was busy at lunchtime, and there were quite a few people on the esplanade, clearly having a good time. Perhaps the thought I had was around just how pleasant is that part of Gosport. I know there are some changes afoot particularly around the bus station, I have previously thought that more should be made of the Esplanade, but with these lunchtime walks I am having a bit of a re-think. I think it is really good that we have a place, close by where we can just go an quietly contemplate, life and Portsmouth Harbour entrance.
