On and around the water of Chichester Harbour…

On and around the water of Chichester Harbour…

We’ve had a couple of outings around Chichester Harbour this week thanks to the brilliant (and very reasonably priced) activities run by the Chichester Harbour Conservancy. On Thursday we took part in a kite making workshop which was held at Hayling Island Lifeboat Station, a beautiful modern building right at the harbour entrance with amazing views (we could see our house several miles away across fields and water)

We made kites from bin bags, which flew amazingly well and actually looked rather beautiful when airbourne. In June there is a mass kite flying event to celebrate 50 years of Chichester Harbour being an Area Of Outsanding Natural Beauty, so they are hoping a few of these will be flying on the day…

I can’t believe the weather we had, not bad for early April!
And today we took Theo and his cousins out on an Easter egg hunt aboard the Solar Heritage a solar powered boat bought with lottery funding. They do wildlife tours and champagne breakfast trips too (we might be back!)
The best part of the boat trip for me was cruising past all the expensive property on the waterfront. I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone to discover that we rather liked this New England style house that looks like it’s straight out of Nova Scotia…

I love those style of houses. I’ve told the husband that if we ever win the lottery we’re building our own house and it’ll be in that style!
