19-20 July Weekend walking around Withering and Thorney Island

Work has been crazy busy! I have 70 meetings scheduled in June and July (ARG!), so getting the lunchtime run in has been impossible and I just don't have the self discipline to do it after I get off the train .

But I finally got a Friday of and after a late start, we drove to the south coast and stopped at Arundel Castle to stretch our legs. Too expensive to go in...but we bought a great chocolate mint ice cream to share. Strolling about with no time constraints was glorious!

It seems that our National Trust membership does not seem to be of much use in southeast England.

We walked 13 miles around the coast and woods near Withern and then stayed in a noisy campground. The next day we walked almost 10 mi around Thorney Island after giving our names at the military barracks. Windy but mostly sunny and we were tired but happy to get outside.

Back to the grind on Monday
