Too blustery to walk to the sea let alone seafront so halfheartedly walked around the village for 20 mins then thought, with traffic apparently reduced, I’d walk to the Woodman’s Arms at Hammerpot.
Was feeling a tad down despite the (windy) sun. Another of those times passing vibes with not a lot to show for it.
Yes, but no need to cross at Hammerpot. Walk this side till Poling then there is a crossing point for walkers which goes through Crossbush. Perfect, I said.
But it is a bit of a walk, he said. Only 5 or 6 miles, I replied thanking him, but too blustery to do today. Yes, said chatty man, expounding on the wind and the direction south. Or something like that.
I was just pleased to discover that I could walk to Arundel without being squashed by traffic or wading through thigh-high weeds and brambles as previously.
And the time-passing vibe had lifted.
PS He was not remotely a frog! I just needed to stick an image in the blog post 🙂
