Our night above the pub was just fine. Not noisy at all, and I slept pretty well. My clothes were all dry, too. Breakfast was good, and we thought it was funny that you were limited to “only” 8 pieces of bacon (which is really like ham) I had Alpen, and I’m always amazed at… Continue reading Arundel Castle and Gardens
Train to Fishbourne, except the train didn’t stop there. That was interesting. So we kept going until we could get off, and low and behold, the next train going back DID stop there. Just because there is a station, don’t count on anything! Anyway, after a 10 minute walk with our luggage, we arrived at… Continue reading Roman junk and dead things

John, Mike,… Continue reading My calves are mooing and my dogs are barking.

We were in a pub yesterday, talking to a couple, and the gentleman’s job is teaching… Continue reading The Englishman who went up the hill and came down with John
I had a wonderful nights sleep last night. I was really surprised. The trains running by our window all night didn’t even bother me. After a confusing time at Victoria Station, we finally figured it out and got on the right train, and even on the right car! This very cute rail station was waiting… Continue reading Steyning, Shoreham-by-Sea, and our friends!
