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.
