My Favourite Places - Bosham in Sussex
This may prove to be the beginning of a regular series! I do have a very long list of nice places I've been to which I'd like to share. Some of them are well-known, some not.
Bosham is well-known in Sussex, and is only an hour's run from where I live. It lies in Chichester Harbour, an extensive expanse of tidal water with many creeks and inlets. Like Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk, it looks very different at low tide compared to high. It's famous for 'drowning' cars left parked on the shoreline at low tide, when the sea is out of sight. When the sea is in, the sheltered nature of the Harbour often creates a 'mirror' effect, and the ideal photo is one taken close to sunset, with the church and other old buildings reflected in the calm and stealthy water.
I couldn't resist a photo of my car with Bosham as a backdrop. It's a 1999 Honda CR-V.
