INVIGORATING ENGLISH CHANNEL

 


This morning we drove to our usual spot on the Brighton Prom stopping on the way to pick up a coffee and muffin.

The English Channel was rough as you can see from the short video, turn your sound on to hear the waves crashing on the shore.  

It must have previously been even rougher as the shingle had been thrown up onto the prom again.

We could have taken a little walk but being lazy so and so's we opted to stay seated and watch the others getting blown about, lol

No swimmers today but plenty of little doggies getting their fur blown about and a few joggers.

Talking of joggers, I don't think I've ever jogged anywhere but I'm still here so I ponder on if jogging actually does any good.

  1. I have never seen a jogger that looks happy.

  2. Thanks for taking us to the seaside! (Which I haven't seen in reality in A YEAR!)

    My attitude toward jogging is, a little is a good thing but too much is a problem. I used to run a couple of times a week, but I would never run a marathon. No way.

  3. It's never too late to take up jogging Briony - but you will need a yellow lycra jogging suit, pink trainers and a stretchy towelling headband. Tom can sit in the car timing you with a stopwatch. After a few weeks your time will definitely improve but you will be a bit sweaty.

  8. We've had some incredible high tides recently, so much so the environmental agency have been working hard to sort the beach levels out.

  9. Listening to the video, it sure sounds windy. I don't jog, never have, never will

  10. At the right age and in the right place running can be exhilarating - even feel like flying. My joints' resilience is too compressed for complete enjoyment of it these days and I have had to resort to cycling. Swimming on the other hand... (Mr T does not agree at all). Your sea looks wild and free.

  11. What a gorgeous video, Briony!! You could play the audio on loop, over 8 hours' time, and sleep by it. So comforting! ~Andrea xoxo

  12. I tried and tried to jog in the past (my sister is an enthusiastic jogger!) and have never been able to get the hang of it or get into a breathing rhythm . In the end I gave up and I decided speed walking suited me better. I enjoyed the video clip which reminds me of winter visits to the beach in Minehead. I'd walk for miles with my Dad. keep well Amanda x

  13. I don't jog, too old for that. I see joggers around the village, skin tight lycra, sweatband, huffing and puffing. There is a stick thin young mum, she is a serious runner. I see her a lot. We always wave to each other.

  14. I would rather walk than jog at my own pace. Great video.
