The reeds in Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve struggled valiantly to provide some colour to the landscape as the dark clouds rolled in.
Nature, I thought, can be truly beautiful. And with that thought we took a deep breath of fresh air <GASP> and headed off to the pollution of Southampton.
To be fair, it was the opposite side of Southampton Water where all that industry was. We still had quite a pleasant walk up the eastern side first. Well, I say pleasant – nature threw a few obstacles in our way…
Deb was so scared of falling in that she kept her eyes closed the whole time!
But a few muddy puddles weren’t going to stop us!
Although I readily accept they might have slowed us down a bit…
