It was time to do our monthly long dog walk so we got the map out and decided to go over to Goodwood:
We started at the ‘P’ in the top right hand corner, and walked south to East Lavant, and then back up in a big loop. The walk was 4.5 miles and took about 1.5hours.
We soon met these young bulls! Merlin had a strop with them and barked at them!
The village of East Lavant is really pretty. I had to tear Maurice away from a rahter nice looking country pub, but even the tables outside were laid up with white napkins and cutlery – not the sort of place for scruffy old us to go in for a quick pint! So we sat on a bench at the cricket ground and had our flask of coffee
Walking back up the hill was pretty until we reached a field full of sheep and lambs that we had to cross! Maurice had to keep a real tight grip on Merlin!
The last bit was along the top and wow what a view! These pictures don’t so it justice – the first one is looking down towards Chichester, and the second one is looking west towards the Isle of Wight, which rises out of the sea like a great big whale from this angle!
