Jennifer led this charming walk from Bosham along the edge of the Bosham Channel to catch the ferry to West Itchenor. However, the ferryman had to collect someone from a yacht moored upstream in the Chichester Channel, so the trip was somewhat longer than expected. Nevertheless The Ship Inn was ready and waiting with some more great food and friendly service. After a good lunch the walkers were ready for the return ferry trip, this time without any detours. Reaching Bosham, the tide had receded far enough for a short cut to be taken across the inlet. This lack of water was a natural occurence caused by the moon and had nothing to do with King Canute, even though he had lived in Bosham. His daughter sadly drowned in a small brook nearby and is reputedly buried in Bosham Church. By the time the walkers reached the car park the mapping showed they had covered over 5 miles but to be fair, they had in no way walked on the water.
