We had a great evening yesterday when neighbours Michelle and Nigel joined us for drinks and an Indian takeaway
A well sated group of friends after James had cleared away the debris of the takeaway – Doug, Michelle and Nigel.
Later in the evening James showed off his new tuxedo and Michelle couldn’t resist and quick dance, although socks and purple slippers are not quite the correct foot ware.
Doug wasn’t to be left out either!
Today, after a walk into the village for some shopping, we took the long way back to see the sea.
Next to the seawall the boats belonging to the Sea Angling Club are taken off the beach during winter months and stored safely from the storms ………
……… although, with the recent high winds, the sea managed to come over the wall and fill the boats. Two volunteers were busy baling out the water when we passed.
Our lifeboat station, sadly under threat of closure at the moment, stands proudly at the end of its walkway.
Luckily we still have most of the beach left this time. Occasionally after a bad storm, if the wind and tide are of the right conditions, there can be very little shingle left and it can take months to build up again.
Selsey is not blighted by a coast road running along the sea front so there’s a marvellous and peaceful footpath along the sea wall to enjoy and no “kiss-me-quick”souvenir shops and penny arcades to worry about. It’s been another blustery old day today but we’ve busied ourselves with domestics, inside and out, and some much needed exercise.
