This morning’s walk was quite delightful. There was the threat of rain, but not really much of a threat. Of course, if it did rain I was either not that far from home or shelter, and besides, having had so little recently it would have been quite nice to get naturally wet. As it happens it did rain, firstly just a very few minutes before i got home and so little as for it to be possible to count the raindrops landing on me, but then we did get a bit more of a downpour a while later, which was very nice.
The first part of the walk from home to the high street wasn’t particularly exciting, with very little going on. There is usually at least one person whom I say “Good Morning”. The Mon St Michel came in whilst I was doing my thing on the radio, and then I walked to the Cockle Ponds.
Over the last couple of days there has been a few seagulls on the south pond, the bigger of the two. The crowd of gulls was even larger today. I assume they are there because of the really large shoal of small fish. I took a picture of a crab beside the pond I wanted to see if there were any more.
I was shocked to see not just one crab, but lots of them. There were crabs hanging off the side of the pond every couple of feet. I’ve never seen so many. I don’t know how big crabs normally grow, but these seem to be getting quite big, but it was the number of them that surprised me.
It was a really interesting walk.
