Haven't done one of these for a while. Well I've been caching but not taken the camera.
Today I took the dog to an area around Henfield which is about 7 miles north of us as the crow flies. We did a circular walk of around 6 miles, taking just over 3 hours, and finding 14 caches along the way.
This is the countryside just south of Henfield.
First part of the walk took us along a disused rail line - the railway has been taken up and is now a human/dog/cycle/horse path.
Bit of the local livestock.
Doggle eyeing up the water. I wouldn't let her go in so she repaid me by rolling in the world's largest cowpat.
You can't see this very well but this is a dried up ox-bow lake. This is the one geographical feature I remember from 4 years of O level geography and I've never actually seen one until now. So for Mr Foster, my patient geography teacher - this one is for you.
Bit more local wildlife, and another reason not to let the dog near the river.
Being eyed suspiciously here. It got quite unnerving after a while.
Dog found a badger sett. I wouldn't let her play.
This is a pillbox. World War 2 defensive lookout point. Not sure what they would be looking for here though - nothing can come up the small waterways and the nearest airport is miles. Oh and that puddle to the left - there's a foot of mud under it. I rescued the dog once I'd stopped laughing.
Dog found a dry bit for a wiggle.
And another view across the countryside.
