Yesterday, Arundel was wet and gloomy,
but there were still a fair amount of people in town.
Many of them were out walking, and umbrellas and waterproofs were the order of the day.
|people going into the castle|
|there is a lot going on in the stream down Mill Road.|
Lots of nests and new babies
( actually, a few unwelcome residents such as the odd rat)
Less said about them, the better
Here is an expectant father
|and here is the missus on the nest|
|he's just off to check on her|
Each year ,we have watched their broods grow and leave.
|past the mill at the end of the road|
|and into Swanbourne Lake|
|wet weather gear for the humans|
|if you don't know Arundel that well this is a great little cafe|
|I was surprised how many walkers there were taking to the hills|
|if you look closely you will see a carving ..JS...its almost 100 years old...wonder who they were?|
I hear JS has a relative still living in the town
|puff up the hill|
|I was glad I had my zoom lens with me|
|there is a wonderful view of the town right up there...it's glorious|
|you can just see the castle down below|
|this little one was panic stricken when she couldn't find her mum...and sheer relief when she found her|
|I took a different route this time and walked down towards Offham|
|the balloons are because there appeared to be a wedding on that day|
I saw the bride clamber into the adorned land rover and her and her father honked the horn as they passed me
|I took the road to Arundel|
|came down to the road by the Black Rabbit Pub|
|I cant remember when the river was so high|
|I walked back to Arundel along the river bank|
|naughty naughty...who has left their rubbish?|
|along River Road, where there are some very pretty fisherman's cottages|
|there is a very pretty public garden where you can sit and watch the river life|
|up past the Kings Arms and"NO" I didn't stop for a drink|
The walk took me a couple of hours and I felt like a new person when I arrived home.
