Today I left home early morning in thick fog. About 30 miles later the sun shone - disappeared - and shone again; this time brilliantly - I had arrived in West Sussex at my mother's. Mum was very surprised to hear of fog as the sun had shone since sunrise in her village!!
We did some shopping and decided to do our usual drive along the sea front from Worthing to Ferring. The tide was just on the turn and the sea had some movement in it.
The day was glorious - the air was still; the temperature warm for January; the sun shone and the warmth of it was wonderful.
We had lunch at Sea Lane Cafe - an excellent Brie and Bacon toasted sandwich (me) and bowl of vegetable soup (more vegetables than soup - Mum) washed down with a classy bottle of spring water and followed by lemon meringue pie (both of us - ooooh)
I took some pics and then we ambled home - taking the scenic route!

If you've ever fallen of a bicycle, or had any misadventure as a result of riding one, this sign is just for you.
A bit further along at Ferring
On the way home, we made a detour via Patching and St John the Devine Church
Having driven through Long Furlong (local name for a beautiful valley with the main road following the contours of the hill) I stopped at the top for the view and some pictures. Wrong time of day, as shooting directly into the sun. I'll have to get up there early one morning to get the best shots!
Then back to Mum's for a cuppa before playing with the rush hour traffic on the way home.
Hey ho - back to reality!!
