Hucking

On a really lovely morning just 3 of us went to Hucking Woodlands Trust site and simply under the directions of our leader followed various footpaths
We eventually came to the part that looks south over the downs, very close to the North Downs Way , there we found a seat and tarried awhile enjoying the lovely Kent countryside
It was a pity our other members were not with us but after they had spent an easy lifetime so called working they simply could not stand the pace
Roughly 6 miles but taken at a slow amble Sorry photos not up to much

Bluebells still out

Faversham-Graveney

first a message for the lovely lady Wendy in Australia , a lot of the photos below are for you at the insistence of your remote cousin Gordon who thinks you may like to see a change in the seasons in Kent
Five of us met up by Faversham Creek , and more by luck than judgement our headmaster turned up at the right place in his new milk float
We set off slightly along the edge of the creek into the edge of Faversham by the Brewery then onto Faversham Quay where we admired all types, shapes and size of boats . Our brilliant map reader and leader found the footpath that lead to another old fashioned boatyard and had a good look at various boats under repair
Just after the boatyard we turned inland across the fields to Graveney church where we stopped for our normal tea break  Then enjoying the sunshine slowly made our way back to Faversham via Goodenstone Church
A great slow amble about 5-6 miles
