The Other End – Day 3

1 comment

Wake up. Draw curtains. Wall to wall sunshine again. Whoopee. Another nice, relaxed breakfast. Today we are going back to the bus station and catching the same bus again but we are going a little farther this time; a 20 minute journey. We alight at the first bus stop after the bus turns away from the […]

The Last Castle

1 comment

We had a sunny day forecast recently so we thought we'd go to see Raglan Castle in Monmouthshire. Why Raglan Castle? Well it's not too long a drive at one and a half hours and it's a big castle. Oh wait, did I say 'its a big castle'? Well I should have said it's a […]

The online weather forecast for today was chilly and cloudy up to about 5:00 PM when we would have some sunny intervals for a couple of hours then back to cloudy for the rest of the day. Knowing how completely wrong the online forecasts had been over the past two or three days we decided […]

Clunton and Clunbury, Clungunford and Clun, Are the quietest places Under the sun.  (A. E. Houseman) Of those four places, mentioned by A E Houseman in his poem, we visited Clun. On our outward journey we didn't actually stop in Clun but drove straight through to Clunton where we turned north past Radnor Wood and […]

We started today with a little trepidation because 4 weeks ago to the day we were also going on a day trip, although to a different destination, and immediately after finishing breakfast I had a heart attack and was carted off to hospital where I spent the next 4 days. It turned out to be […]

This is my last breakfast at the Royal Lion and my last morning in Lyme Regis. After breakfast, having re-packed my case, I wander up to the bus stop, catch the bus to Axminster Station where I wait for the London train. So am I homeward bound? Well, yes, but it has occurred to me […]

Lynn – Day 4

2 comments

Today we wake to a cloudy sky. This does not come as a surprise as it was forecast and we still decide to stop off in Thetford on the way home as neither of us knows much about it. We finish breakfast, pack and set off. We parked near the 18th century Nuns' Bridges which […]

Lynn – Day 3

No comments

Another day, another sunny morning. Today we are going further north to the coast at Hunstanton known colloquially as 'Sunny Hunny'. It's about 40 years since I was there last and we are going once again to look at the cliffs. It was a straightforward, uneventful journey and we reached the old lighthouse in about […]

We got up this morning to find a cloudy sky but it is supposed to get brighter later. After breakfast we paid our bill and booked out but left our luggage until we were ready to leave Brighton later in the day. We went down the road again to Marine Parade to have another look […]

Yesterday we walked four feet

… (the ones on the end of our legs that is) and we walked them from Westminster to Liverpoool Street Station. Why Liverpool Street Station? Because that's where our train to London terminates and we will be going back home from there. We saw Westminster Palace, the London Eye in close up, the Millenium Bridge, […]
