It was supposed to be a stroll in to the castle grounds and a cup of coffee,but morphed into a walk
that went hither and thither. Je ne regret rien though,WX was a little rainy drizzly and grey threatening clouds,temp OK and a bit humid,lots of long grass,weeds,and hay.7 of us lots of information being exchanged,some of it reliable.One of our intrepids missed the motorway turn and went to Ashford
and had to come back.We went through Broomfield and Chegworth and back to the Ashford road then back in to the Castle Grounds,where we saved the princely sum of £189 on entrance fees.We stopped off for a coffee and sandwich ,so they could recover some of the lost profit.
All a bit tiring,they are going to have to screw the coffin lid down well when the time comes,
as I am so fit now.7 miles?
It can be a little damp when hiking so be prepared.

As I have mentioned in other post that this year we have cancelled a lot of walks mainly due to rubbish weather . When we do I get an e mail from a very lovely very young lady by the name of Wendy who lives in Australia . So fear got the better of us this week , the weather lady said it was going to rain but being scared of Wendy four of us met up on a very cloudy morning at Conyer . From here we skirted the boatyard and followed the Conyer Creek north . Where the creek met the River Swale we stopped for 5 minutes to watch a seal apparently looking for his dinner . Following the River Swale we walked east until we came to the site of the redundant Elmley Ferry where we halted for a tea break Then inland to Blacketts farm where we took the footpath back to Conyer By now weather had become very humid and mad it hard going 7.25 miles

Herne Bay-Tankerton

it seems that in 2016 we have missed more walks than we have actually undertaken due to one reason or the other . This week was an exception in that the weather lady said it was going to stay dry for a change . As it was only 4 of us were available but we met up at Hampton Pier Herne Bay and the sun was shining . Due to the fact that one of the group was suffering from a injury we thought that a simple very slow stroll west was the order of the day . This is what we did simply strolled along the sea front to Tankerton where we forced ourselves to have a bite to eat and cuppa . Leaving the cafĂ© we made straight for the ice cream shop where we sat and enjoyed the day , and the ice creams . Eventually we left the comfort of the ice cream shop and wandered very slowly back to Hampton Pier . A very hot but enjoyable stroll of just over 6 miles
