Anyhoo, Dad and I observed the sudden display of sunshine and decided a little walk was in order so to Bosham and Itchenor we did went.
Herein lies the picture postcard village of Bosham
Surrounded on three sides by water, this particular view is from the far side of the harbour which at low tide can be crossed on foot
And at high tide is mainly used for sailing
Also at high tide, this tends to happen to the harbour road, thus not a good place to park your car if you want to visit the village
Also not a great plan to try and drive through, like the following driver wisely decided against.
To reach Itchenor from Bosham on foot the best thing to do is catch the little ferry a form of which has been operating in the channel since the 17th Century.
The ferry is also used to transport folk to and from their moored boats and if you're lucky enough you can have a little ride up and down the stretch of water taking in the scenery and all the yachts you will never be able to afford....and on a sunny day like yesterday the extra 10 minutes out of the ferry was bliss.
We also walked part the way down the Itchenor path which heads to the Witterings, a walk I did a couple of months back, pictures from which can be found here . This walk ended up being a little further than intended the estimate of 4 miles actually worked out at 7.5 miles...but what a perfect view and a prefect day.
