I went for a walk today. Not too far, only a couple of miles just down to the waterfront. It was a bit rainy. Not very rainy, but enough that I was grateful for my proper raincoat.
There were a couple of things that kind of got me the first how busy was the high street. As it was a Sunday afternoon, I expected the high street to be much quieter than it was. There were more shops open than I expected. And there were quite a few people around.
I was pleasantly surprised to see people happy and laughing. There was a couple with a small dog. It was very bouncy, not in a nuisance kind of way, but a happy one. There was just something about the street that felt good.
Walking along the waterfront, there was a chap sat, talking on his phone, quite loudly, but he was putting food down for seagulls as well. There was quite a bunch. I apologised as I walked past, but he smiled and they’ll be back – I turned around a few yards later, and they were.
I was having look in Peter Martin’s shop. He normally has a good selection of Gosport related books, I usually take a look as I go past, but haven’t done for a while. There wasn’t anything today.
Overall, it was a pretty good walk.
