Walk Report

West Sussex Literary Trail Part 3, Saturday 20th July 2019
7 walkers, 19 miles – leader Peter Buchwald
Grey skies turned to tropical blue
Summer rain to scorching heat
The rolling Downs beneath our feet
Lush woodland in its summer prime.

Goodwood racecourse below us
A string of pearls bathed in light
Views afar of the Isle of Wight
Inlaid in the glimmering sea.

Our group that day respected
Time honoured walkers habits
No one set the pace by racing
No one rushed to be home early
For an evening appointment
No problem with a late lunch.
