Day 170 Mile 170: Tea by the Sea

Day 170 Mile 170: Tea by the Sea. The weather remains stunning, so it seemed a good idea to get today’s mile run before breakfast, and before it got too hot.

The high pressure has built up which makes everywhere oddly quiet apart from the occasional onslaught of the sound of a passing vehicle. In-spite of the apparent silence there is a lot of activity out there with blackbirds bouncing around in the hedges. Out to sea there are a few cormorants fishing on the turn of the high tide, floating like charred driftwood on the mirror-glass of the sea, only to disappear under the surface in a spreading ellipse before reappearing a minute or so later several feet along the swash. The impression all of this silent activity gives is of nature getting its work done before the heat of the day begins.

The coastline seems invigorated with bright sunlight, but with a slight haze rising from the sea so that apart from in the shade where the hues seem vibrant: the world in the sun remains saturated with colour but washed out, almost as if it has been made from cut outs from a low budget printer.

Its a lovely little run, if rather warm, not helped by the fact that all of my shorts are currently in the wash. It also makes for a wonderful opportunity to legitimately sit down for a morning cuppa outside afterwards and take in the view 🙂

I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.

Distance: 1614.6 meters recorded
