This is the walk I do 3 or 4 times a week - and back up the hill which is why I don't bother with gyms.
There is an alternate ginnel on the left but I usually stick to the lane
Down past the two houses that were built in our grounds - before us
On down hoping no large vans come down the lane.
You can just see the main road at the bottom but main roads and traffic are to be avoided at all costs
So we turn left at the lamp post down Park's Lane
At the end we turn Right down Watery Lane
Through the ginnel to the Queen's Head
Go between the Queen's Head and the Italian restaurant
Past the old laundry which no longer does dry cleaning
I have yet to discover what the tall pillar at the end is for.
Along Market House Lane with its floral display
at the end of which is the main thoroughfare - the Parade.
a busy Saturday morning
Now the Parade morphs into The Avenue.
Can you smell the sea? We are getting closer.
This part requires concentration - the pavement is positively wavy - near the sea of course.
Not much further
There's Gail's my hairdresser next to the Wheel House
Here is my good friend Gail helpfully giving my coat to another customer. That's Laura in the centre- my taxi driver's daughter.
Hair done - walk all the way back for a bite of lunch then next door but one for Jackie's 90th Birthday Party. Sadly I was the only one of our original quartet able to be there but there were loads of friends and neighbours - some I hadn't seen for a few years. The food was non stop and delicious and Jackie seemed really happy.
Jackie second from the left with old members of Townswomen's Guild. It was good to see them again
Jackie doing the honours with her fantastic daughter Jane who works in our local hospital, cares for her mother and an invalid husband and does endless work for charities.
Happy birthday darling Jackie. and the cake was scrummy:)
