Paleolithic rock shelter.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013


Due to various reasons this weeks outing  was planned as a short flat walk so 6 of us met up at Halstow very near but not in the local pub . Our member from Broadstairs dragged himself out of his sick bed to partake of the walk  not like our absent member from the educational services
The cloud was overcast and slight hint of a chill wind so we set off along the footpath alongside the edge of the creek where we bumped into two friends of one of our walkers who were restoring a sailing barge , have a look at the photos below .
We followed the footpath along the edge of the water and even with the tide out the views were great with the a few waders looking for food along the mud flats .
There were a lot of  boats or wrecks that gave a hint to a working past and sad to see them left to rot and unloved , what tales they could tale .
The sun made an appearance and suddenly it became very warm by the time we got to Ham Street where we stopped for a coffee break and take our coats off. It was near here we had really good views of a Hen Harrier soaring in the sky .
After a needed break our leader insisted we carry on our planned route so up on  through to Upchurch, past the church  and then across the fields wending our way back to Halstow. Not a long walk but a real great day out and advert for being retired
