CHARING TO HARRIETSHAM
Omlette and chips
As a few of us had not been on this walk the previous fortnight,we decided to do it again,especially as there was a really good pub at the end of it!
The day started off chilly and very bright and sunny as we debussed from the train at Charing.
Into the village and we stopped ,as we had previously at the bakers ,for an excellent sausage roll.They were startled to get 5 old geezers suddenly burst into the shop at once .
Up the hill and we joined the North Downs Way and made good progress under very blue skies and it became warm ,so jackets were stowed.We stopped at the Chalk Cross memorial opposite Lenham for a brief sit down,which turned into half an hour's sunbathing a la last of the summer wine.
Another hour or so and we were back to Harrietsham and the Roebuck Pub and its excellent old fart's menu.It was quiet and welcoming and the staff were extra cheerful.
I have suggested that we do it again next week,but It has been suggested we visit the coast.
