The Coastal Path from Hythe is not very….coastal. There is a lot of road. Miles and miles of it in fact.
No, really. Miles of it. And miles.
We walked over 10 miles of the flat grey stuff on this walk. Tedium soon set in.
Ten miles of road-walking is not fun. Still, there were a few things to see along the way. Guinea fowl for example, giving us their beady eye.
But best of all was something we saw as we reached Blackfield, just by Fawley. It was a massive bird of prey, gliding high above us and sometimes making huge, slow flaps of its wings. I think this was a buzzard. Whatever it was, it was a sight to behold!
