924 – The Solent Way

What we thought would be quite nice was to take lunch over to Titchfield Haven, the nature reserve just a little way along the coast from Lee-on-The-Solent. We prepared our tuna mayo rolls, a piece of fruit and a drink, took books and magazines and were prepared for an afternoons relaxation.

We like to take a drive along the Stokes Bay to see what is going on. As we approached the bay, we could see a container/cargo ship and it looked huge. I don’t know if it was because of the big superstructure, it just seemed very big. It turned out to be The Maersk Bahama, I was surprised to find that it massed only 28,000 tons. Not really that big.

It’s always a bit hit and miss as to whether or not we get a parking slot, as it happened today there were quite a few slots we were able to get one where we had a clear view of the water. we parked up and bought a ticket. Lunch was verŷ nice.

I thought I would go for a walk. I found a path that I hadn’t walked along before. There were plenty of signs declaring it to be part of the England Coastal Path and a bit further along was another sign showing that this area was part of the Solent Way. I was walking towards Warsash, I wouldn’t get there though. I’d allowed myself about half an hour outbound. I was surprised to find myself thirty plus feet above sea level, following the path along a cliff that was obviously inclined to crumble. There was deep undergrowth. I wonder how much that impeded the erosion?

Anyhow, it turned into a very pleasant couple of hours. Quite satisfying.
