December 2018 Ramble

Thirty-one intrepid walkers [and one hound] set off from the Club on Saturday 15th December on a cold, windy and rainy day. We walked up the side of the Fishbourne creek with occasional breaks in the rain and made it to Fishbourne where we huddled under our car port for our coffee break and a few used the loo before returning along the Salterns Way bridle path. We all agreed that the walk had successfully brought us out of the house and into the outdoors on a day when we would probably have stuck inside, and despite the weather most felt better for it. After hanging our wet clothes in the club changing rooms, we had pre-ordered lunch in the quarter deck which was served promptly for us, on tables laid out with Christmas crackers, and I for one had a mulled wine with the meal.
