It was a super couple of days and we got around the countryside quite a bit. One of the highlights was visiting Bateman's which was the writer Rudyard Kipling's home and is now a National Trust Property. I enjoyed it so much and will be writing more about my visit and the life of this amazing man when I get home.
I only had two requests for my stay in Sussex...bluebells and sheep! My hosts delivered both!!!
Beautiful bluebells. And I got to ride around in a Bluebell as well - Janette and Martyn's campervan is named Bluebell!
Aren't they the most adorable things? (yum!)
The next day we went to Eastbourne - a pretty town that is one of my favourites.
After lunch we headed over to Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters - I never get tired of looking at these beauties. I've walked over these twice - October of 1997 on my own and September of 2013 with Claudia. I am so glad I've done it but no plans to do it again!
And more sheep!!!!
A pastoral scene with a bit of drama - it was raining on and off for that "broody look".
It was a lovely relaxing couple of days with Claudia, Janette and Martyn - great conversation, lovely tea and biscuits that just kept coming (thanks Martyn!), wonderful hospitality and a new author to binge read. (Susan Branch). Just what I needed!
Thank you Janette and Martyn - it was wonderful!
