Out and About

The last couple of days have been very pleasant indeed.


Yesterday I visited an old college friend
who ran away to join the circus when we were 18. 
She became a lion/tiger tamer ---
makes me feel very boring indeed!! 
After 15 years with 'The Great British Circus',
which she co-owned,
she has joined Zippos Circus
and this means she gets to tour around the South Coast
and we get to catch up.

Arundel Art Trail

It is well worth taking an afternoon out
to mooch around this beautiful town
and visit the numerous artists
who are exhibiting here this week. 
So many talented people in one spot ---
I wish I had the wall space
(and the funds)
to justify hanging more art :(

Anyway ---
London had elephants,
Bristol had gorillas,
Edinburgh had cows
and Arundel had rhinos!!!




Aren't they gorgeous --- mini versions available too!

Mini Breakers

Last week Mr P and I journeyed to the beautiful town of Rye in East Sussex. 
We spent our first night away together in Rye two years ago but didn't see much of the place as it was a boys' RC weekend spent at the Brooklands track. 
So this time it was to be two 'George Days' on the trot ... visiting, exploring, marvelling and adoring ...YIPPEE!!

Our first stop was a lovely little place called Middle Farm, just outside of Lewes. 
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous gift shop (purchased an iron key hook with hearts) and a delightful farm shop full of delicious, tempting goodies ... cheese scone anyone?
Then back on the road with a detour to the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill.  I've seen this building on TV and had an urge to visit.  Don't know what I was expecting but came away feeling disappointed -- a lovely building but lots of construction going on, which equalled noise and mess. 
So only a couple of pics taken from the rooftop to show we was here!!

This morning I took 54 photos --- WOW I love my camera :)
This afternoon I have considered, pondered, ummmmed and ahhhhed and have picked my favourites. 

And isn't Picasa a wonderful application??
I can while away many many many hours ...
