Latest walk report: Friday 10th January 2020

Sun, Sea and Sand 2020, Friday 10th January 2020

28 Walkers, 14.5 miles (16 miles for those who reached the elusive Wetherspoons) - leader Ron WIlliamson

No rain, no snow, no mud, no hills, no navigational problems, hardly a challenging walk; just a great opportunity to enjoy each other’s company without having to worry about where to place our next step. A chance to witness a murmuration, watch seals swimming in the Thames, visit a life boat station 1.3 miles out at sea and walk on a sandy beach leaping effortlessly over the groynes. Then as the sun disappeared in the west a chance to observe a majestic full moon appear in the eastern sky and combine with the refracted rays of sunlight to produce the most awe inspiring sunset.

A few yards to the station to board a waiting train to end the day, but half of us wanted more and decided to walk to the nearest Wetherspoons which mysteriously seemed to have been relocated ? It was therefore some half hour later, and now in the dark, when our walk concluded and as promised our winter blues had been blown away
