Back on the South Downs after a three days walking break in The Lakes prior
to last weekend.

A walk of sunny skies, cloud skies with the odd bit of rain and hail.
However, it was a very pleasant 8 mile circuit from above the small village
of Cocking. The walk took us south to above East Dean before making our way
east then north to the South Downs Way. A 3 mile 'stroll' west along the
South Downs Way in a strong wind finished of the walk. Saw only four people
along the whole length of the walk .... great day out.

See some photos from along the route at the address below.

Hi Sandy, it looked like great weather for photos on that walk, you had all
kinds of weather and skies, lovely stuff! I'm not familiar with most of the
TR locations on this newsgroup, but I enjoyed looking through your photos of
course! ;-) Makes me wish I was walking there now. I've not been out for a
walk for a while, but I'll have to rectify this soon - before I put too much
more weight on! :-S ...(tell Paul Saunders that I never quite stuck to
those New Year's resolutions...!)

Neither have I... yet!

I had that Christmas cold which lasted thoughout the whole of January,
and a recent rare visit by relatives from Canada has forced me to
indulge in a bit of, er, socialising, shall we say... (there's always
something, isn't there?)

But I'm still optimistic, there's plenty of the year left and a new
camera to play with, so I will be going out a lot more soon, hopefully
(unless something else comes along to screw things up).

Try reading your post to me about setting goals and finding out the problems
and what causes them to be broken etc... ;-) Truly inspirational stuff, as
we can both see! :-) I find that booking a holiday normally gives suitable
motivation to get fit!

House hunting has meant that I've not done much, but once I find a house and
settle in, I'm hoping that I can get into the groove, especially if it's got
a garage where I can hang my punch bag and stuff.

Cheers Ste ... Yes, it was a mixed bag of weather, but fortunately we were
just far enough north to miss the heavy burst of rain. Back out again
tomorrow from East Meon for a round of the South Downs Way over Butser Hill.
Going to be overcast, but no rain.

Have a good one tomorrow Sandy, and you never know, the overcast weather
might give some nice moody clouds, always good for a picture or two.

It's easy to give advice, not so easy to follow it! :-)

The relatives have just departed, but now I've caught another damn cold!

I find that having someone nagging you to go out walking gives good
motivation. If you make regular arrangements to go walking then you
feel obligated not to let them down. Perhaps a walking club? Or just
regular weekly walks with a group of friends? Same days each week, no
matter what the weather. Or maybe get a dog?

I've seen it on both of my recent waterfall walks - catkins on the
trees.

This is not winter weather, what did I buy that sleeping bag for? ;-)

Definitely! :-)

Another one? Jeez, it seems like you've been unwell since the October
project. :-( Try taking some vitamin C and cod liver oil.

I told my girlfriend to MAKE me go out for a walk. But she's as lazy as me!
:-) ...But we did manage a short walk on Sunday, and got some photos too.
Nothing great though. But it was nice to be out, for once! The lighter
nights should help also - it was actually a bit light when I came out of
work at 5pm! :-) We're hoping to get our own house soon, so you never know,
we might even get a dog too - then we'll have to go for more walks!
