Last day of summer
The kids went back to school today, so I thought I’d make the most of the weather yesterday and take my daughter and her friend to the beach. We are around forty miles from The Witterings in West Sussex. At the far end of West Wittering beach is a nature reserve, East Head, formed by the shifting sand dune spit that makes up one side of the entrance to Chichester harbour. It’s a great place to go in winter when migratory birds flock to the salt marshes, and a great place to go any time of year for the fine pale sand beach and shifting shallows, framed by marram grass dunes. It’s a rare habitat in the south east of England and it never fails to lift my spirits with its wide open views and big skies.
