I was told that I had lost the knack for planning walks on hot summer evenings – but I proved them wrong, and our last summer evening walk was a triumph. Walking along the Chichester canal tow path and then around the city wall on a balmy July evening with good company was just a delight. We even had sighting of the Perigan near the Cathedral.
Other evening walks included Slindon Woods at bluebell time and Pagham harbour at low tide – quite eerie, but awe inspiring none the less. It seems although we have done both of these walks in past years the scenery in different lights and at different times of the year still take our breath away – or is that just the walking!
Our WI have also joined in with two West Sussex Federation Walks, seeing places beyond Bognor Regis and meeting other WI members. We tried our hand at pond dipping and other woodland crafts at Woods Mill Wildlife Trust Centre at Henfield and had a tour of the working windmill at High Salvington. Both well worth a further visit.
