However, when I came out, the clouds had cleared and bits of blue sky and some sunshine.. so off to Petworth ..
The winds were still very strong and I passed many flooded rounds.. the flood plains in Pulborough ( en route) were definitely justifying their existence and reinforcing how vital they are.
I'd arrived about lunchtime... so a very pleasant scone before a wander..
The was evidence of heavy rain everywhere..
a very wet walk down to the lake...
The wind was very strong today..
I was kept company as I walked back..
Good to get some fresh air
