Well, after all the rain over the Christmas break and being cooped up indoors, I was starting to get a bit of cabin fever. Thankfully, with the break in the weather on New Year’s day, a lovely walk along Felpham seafront, through the village, passing by poet, William Blake’s cottage and then lunch in the local pub was the perfect cure. It seems that everyone had the same idea – the seafront was packed, as was the pub but we were fortunate to get a table. Thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine, crashing waves and atmosphere; everyone seemed happy to be out. Pub lunch was pretty good too.
