This will be a quickie, as it’s midnight now, and the alarm is set for 530 am.
We had an easy day, with no real plans. Mike & Julia headed out for a 22 mile bike ride before we even got out of bed. I got up and went for a fantastic run on ancient trails, Dick and Finn snuggled and hung out.
We went into Petersfield for lunch - a great meal in a funky little attic restaurant. We sat and ate cozy in this nest while the thunder boomed and the skies opened up. Ducked into a few shops between the rain drops and headed for home.
In the evening, I went to Julia’s dancy exercise class again (thank you, ladies!), and then Dick and I went for a swim and pub with Mike. Everyone’s abed now.
It was just what we all needed - no big sites to see or ground to cover. A day like this is a luxury that can only be afforded when you stay somewhere for a while. I liberated myself from the big camera today (another indulgence I could take being here for two weeks!), and played with Instagram and Hipstamatic on my iPhone instead. Below a small gallery of these from our home town day.
Tomorrow we beat the rush hour traffic as we set out for an overnight in Kent. We’ll do Canterbury Cathedral and three castles - Leeds, Bodium and Arundel. Dinner will be at Julia’s brother’s house, and we’ll overnight at an inn nearby. So no blog tomorrow night, but there will surely be a biggie when we get home.
To Kent! But first, to bed!
