On the western outskirts of Worthing is the Waterwise Garden, a shingle garden with wooden sculptures and boardwalk, which has been created on the beach itself.
The Waterwise Garden was designed to highlight the need for water conservation along the south coast. The plants here are those which are best suited to reduced rainfall, and aside from the natural rain that falls here, they need no other watering whatsoever.
Is it just me, or has the drought-resistant tree in the photo above succumbed to dehydration?
Still, I quite liked this garden. The wooden sculptures were appealing.
While my wife and I took in the garden, the kids played around on the rocks in front of it.
We carried on west for a mile or so more, leaving Worthing and entering Goring-by-Sea, before deciding to call it quits and head back to our hotel for the night.
