|Arundel High Street|
What a miserable, bleak day here in Arundel today.
I have to say it quite matched my mood.
I haven't been out walking for a while,
stuff has been happening in my life, that made
me want to just close the doors on the world.
Today though, I thought I must just start my regular daily walks and went down to Swanbourne Lake and up into the hills.
|there were nests and new babies everywhere, in the most bizarre places|
|Mill Road was damp and there were puddles all over the place|
|Swanbourne Lake was quiet apart from the wildlife|
|a few damp joggers|
|photos were kept to black and white to match the mood of the place|
|everyone I met had an umbrella and mostly wore wellies....|
the kids though, dived into the puddles ruining their trainers
|wet and muddy ground|
|the gallops in the park where John Dunlop's racehorses often run|
|small signs of Spring|
What a gloomy, gloomy day, but it was so wonderful
to get out and feel the wind and rain on my face
and walk into the hills.
I would have gone even further up
onto the downs but a helicopter was circling
and often that means a prisoner has escaped
from Ford Prison along the road.
Yes,Yes, I know in my heart they are pretty harmless,
but the way my month has just gone,
I felt I could encounter Magwitch himself up in those hills.
I took the quick route back
and we had dinner with a close friend.
So, a lovely end to the day.
Hope your day is going well and there are no
Magwitches in your life at the moment.
