It’s both healthy exercise and generally fun for me to walk from Lightwater to the RLC Museum at Deepcut*. Not quite so much fun today though, as it started off dry and then began to rain.
Did this time wear a waterproof jacket, a couple of weeks ago a put on a quilted jacket that said it was guaranteed waterproof. Turned out disappointingly not to be so. The heavy rain I walked through soaked the jacket and its quilting, so when I took it off it was almost as heavy as a sack of potatoes. I don’t know, does waterproofing disappear in time.
Pleasingly I spotted a tractor doing an excellent thorough job of mowing the invasive scrub and grasses alongside the track along Chobham Ridges on the Maultway. This will result in a blooming of wild flowers. Here a few of photos of the work.
* Dear wife volunteers in the Museum, so can walk there, and then get a lift back home.
