So East Sussex, what did we do, what did we see and how was it? Answer-Not a lot-not too much- and bloody sunny in that order.
Sunny sunny sunny what the hell did Carol actually do at Sunday School, she must have been a star pupil to get this weather. It's been absoluteley gorgeous every day really. Its now 18:00 and there are still no clouds in the sky.
How jealous are you?
Anyway East Sussex, I've already mentioned Beachy Head and Eastbourne in the previous Blog, later in the week we went to Battle, that's not me and Carol falling out, just the place where the Battle of Hastings took place
Contemplated buying a new place whilst we were down here, its compact and bijou but its just us. Unfortunately, Carol took a embarrassing photograph of me trying out the facilities. When can a man get 5 minutes peace to contemplate the world. (see photo). In the end we changed our minds, we cannot claim for the moat on expenses unless I become an MP. The place was called Bodium Castle and it was an amazing place, full moat etc. On the way back visited a really lovely town called Tenterden, not sure if it has any historical merit but a fantastic old High Street. As we were late getting back the call of the TOBY INN was too strong to ignore! Glenn is now at least half a stone heavier.
Went to Hastings, well we thought we were in Hastings, actually in St Leonards so we set off walking and walking. We were shattered by the time we got to Hastings but the Old Town was worth the visit
So that's East Sussex, lots of historical stuff and nice weather, as well as lovely countryside and small villages, altogether a nice week.
We'll communicate again next week, when amongst other things we'll cover whether or not Carol's dislike for the stuck up people opposite lessens, what its like to be in a caravan for over 3 weeks without a break, and pose the question how may maps can you (Carol) fit in a caravan?!
Carol & Glenn.
