Had a fantastic weekend. I spent Saturday on Portobello Road, strolling around, eating, drinking Prosseco in sunshine, and I bought a really good basket for my bike. Now I only need a helmet and I’m ready to go.
On Sunday we visited the ancient town of Rye in East Sussex. It is a truely picturesque place. The town centre is tiny and built on a hill, mostly medieval buildings and narrow cobbled streets. You can walk the whole place in half an hour. The most beautiful street is Mermaid Street, cobbled with stones and leading to the Lamb House where Henry James used to live and further to the churchyard and the watch tower.
After we walked through the town we went for a fabulous lunch of lobster and chips at the Fish Cafe. It was so good, especially washed down with a bottle of Riesling.
Then, we decided to go to the beach, we started walking through The Rye Harbour Natures Reserve, have not seen many birds but a whole lot of sheep. We never reached the beach however we did stumble across a medieval castle built for Henry VIII, Camber Castle.
Today the weather is pretty lousy so I decided to stay at home, made a superb hollandaise souce to go with steamed asparagus and poached eggs, afterwards I ironed a lot to burn the calories off, it’s all ebay ready now. I also watched a Polish film called Interrogation, it was incredibly good.
