What can be more carefree than paddling in the sea!
Monday was Peter’s Birthday, so we both took a day off and went to the coast. Normally we go to Chichester harbour because we have a boat there, but this time we decided to go somewhere we haven’t been for ages, but we used to go to all the time; Cuckmere Haven
Situtated between Seaford and Eastbourne, the flat bottomed valley typical of a glacial valley has the river Cuckmere flowing through it with text book meanders and ox-bow lakes
The mouth of the river is at the start of the chalk cliffs which stretch from here to Eastbourne and are known as the Seven Sisters
There are great walks between the meanders, and then there is the beach and the cliffs to climb, so we had great fun wandering around all day, and Wilson was able to be off the lead unless we were near sheep or the edge of the cliff which for some reason he really really wanted to look over!
Here he is with a few of the sticks that he collected during the day!
Carefree is the topic of this week’s photo challenge, below are some photos of the walk in Cuckmere Haven. Click on any of them to see a full size version.
