On a lovely sunny day (at last!) we spent a couple of hours strolling around the beautiful gardens of Nymans in West Sussex, part of the National Trust. The house isn’t much, part house part ruin, but the gardens are lovely and there’s a small but very decent second-hand bookshop. We were also much impressed by the friendliness of the staff and volunteers.
A mixture of cloud and blue sky on our short visit to Worthing was just right for sitting on the beach with a sandwich and for admiring the huge offshore wind farm out at sea (119 turbines!). Afterwards, we made the short drive to the pretty village of Steyning for cake and a pot of loose leaf tea, and where we admired the presence of an independent bookshop and a musician’s shop-front.
From the train, on a day trip to the seaside (Bognor), I took this iPhone picture of Arundel, where we broke our journey for a brief visit. Arundel is a lovely, small town on a steep hill, though it’s difficult to take decent pictures that don’t include loads of parked cars.
