Wandering About The Patch. Pt 1; Down South

My Patch covers a fair chunk of ground, but to be fair I can and do cover it all. On foot. Maybe not every day or even week, [[::cough cough:: year...]], but I get there.

With - at least according to the local constabulary at time of typing - driving anywhere to take your exercise 'very naughty', this has meant said Patch's further reaches getting more visited. When the usual constraints around Real Life [yes, that] allow, at least.

Thus it was that I beat my southern bounds a little while back. You may recall some pretty Willow Warbler pictures?

Yep, from here;

A footpath in the south west
of the Patch

I started at the Nose, then followed the coast south, before heading inland up my southern boundary [which is a little north of the bit where Patch Bounds hit the coast, for Technical Reasons]

You may recall I was here last year;

Looking out from Preston Down

After some more climbing, a turn, and some vexation at seemingly over the top closures of outdoor areas, I eventually got to this bit;

Oh dear, he's getting all arty again...

Well before all that, assorted other pictorial bits. Ignoring even a nodding aquaintance with temporal order...

Torre Abbey bird baths

Boo hoo

Caption competition

Real art

This takes me

This is...

.. one of...

... my favourite...

... sections of coast path.

Back where it
[almost] began

It was a good yomp - and my feet certainly knew it! - but well-worth the effort. :)

Coming up, you may be amazed to learn, is part 2, when I went the other way, more or less, though with less time to play with I didn't get as far before fading light curtailed play.

Oh, and me actually talking a bit about birds.

Then we'll have more Bugs! and pretty flowers and things.. Ah, joy.


Be Seeing You...
