WALK SULLINGTON WARREN,WEST SUSSEX & JILL & BRIAN’S BARBEQUE 18th July 2010

Jean Miller

We had a long walk with members plus twenty-six hounds - some members travelling from Essex, which was quite a journey for them. Luckily for us, it was warm but overcast when we set off, as there was a bit of climbing involved on the way out.

Everyone made it up the hill to the monument, where members took photographs and had a little rest.

Some of the boy dogs seemed a little frisky and had to be put on the lead as punishment.

Josie left her mum, who went back for her, only to find out on her return that that Josie had doubled-back and re-joined Herbie for the rest of the walk. Beryl spent most of the time until we all returned worrying what had happened; and was very relieved when Josie appeared non the worse for her little adventure.

After this, we all proceeded in convoy to Jill and Brian’s, anticipating the eagerly awaited barbeque.

For those of you who have never been to this, you should try and come - it is a really enjoyable experience.

We had a super barbeque, delightfully hosted by Jill and Brian. I don’t think anyone would have managed anything else to eat that evening - with a couple of exceptions.

The sun came out in the afternoon, and it was very relaxing, sitting in this lovely garden. In fact, it must have been about 5 o’clock before the party really broke up.

Thank you, Jill and Brian for a lovely day. P.S. The hounds enjoyed it too!

(Ed. Absolutely, Jean. Another lovely day spent with friends of various species).
