West Sussex October 2016

On Friday 14th October we set off for West Sussex in the VW T6 van loaded up with Mel’s windsurf kit, bikes and everything we might need for a week on the south coast. The weather was good for the journey but the traffic was quite heavy so we reached Barbara & Andy’s in Eastleigh about 4.30.pm. After a quick catch up and cup of tea we carried on to Chidham and arrived at Canute Cottages about 6.30.pm.

On Saturday morning we went on a bit of a recce after calling at Dynamic Sails in Westbourne. We went to Bracklesham and had a coffee at Billy’s Cafe on the Beach, then West Wittering (but we didn’t stop due to the car park charge – £6.50). We went back to the cottage for lunch and then went for a walk around Cobnor calling at the Old House at Home for a drink on the way back. It had been a lovely day up to this point when it started to rain on our way back to the cottage.

On Sunday morning we drove to Hayling Island and had a look at the beach at the south end of the island.
