In my quest to gee myself up into some worthwhile cardio I’m starting to do some long walks in beautiful places that I enjoy – not hard here in Sussex in the UK. I’ve been trying to remember why I stopped doing that – but there is no ‘why’ really. Familiarity breeds contempt, they say, and despite my resolution when I moved down here to the South Coast that I would never stop being a ‘tripper’ and continue to enjoy the lovely surroundings here, it all just faded away. So – a new resolution – feast my eyes on the beauty spots here and get healthier into the bargain.
Today was a trip to Widewater Lagoon, a (man-made) saltwater lagoon right by the sea, that has been allowed to naturalise and attracts endless birds and water creatures and a huge variety of saline-tolerant plants. I also love taking photos so I had a great time on both fronts – tho I had to keep reminding myself that this was intended as a cardio opportunity and NOT a photo opportunity!
