The Autumn Walk  September 2017

On Sunday 24th September our autumn walk wandered around the lower reaches of Portsmouth Harbour in Fareham Hampshire.  We met at the very dog friendly Dovecote Eatery, Home Farm, Cams Estate, for a quick lunch before setting off.

We were enjoying a stroll through the autumn woods when we realised one of the dogs was missing, so had an impromptu rest while a search party scooted off to find the absconder-luckily she was clever enough to go back and wait by her car so all was well.

Setting off again we came out onto the foreshore where the dogs had a nice cool down in the water, and then across the playing field to see the sights of Portsmouth harbour including the new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Back at the café we said our goodbyes to old and new friends, with tired (slightly smelly) dogs settling down for a nap on the way home, all very grateful to George for a lovely walk, and even managing to book good weather and high tide!
