Our Travel blog
Tuesday 5 April
We had a lovely night at Fairlight Woods site; is there a better way to greet the day than sunlight dappled through the trees accompanied by the birds singing? Of course every silver lining has a cloud and it our case it was to open the curtains to our neighbour, a gentleman of ample proportions in shorts, surgical stockings, white England socks and sandals enjoying a good swear at an uncooperative appliance. Fortunately they've now gone out and we are listening to Simone Felice while enjoying the sunshine, woods, birds and a nice cuppa.
We spent the afternoon with our friends Mark and Laura and their gorgeous daughter Grace. We enjoyed a guided tour of Old Hastings, including climbing goodness knows how many steps to look out over Hastings and then tea and cake in a charming cafe completely lined with books, and with the bonus of plenty of toys for Grace to play with. It really is rewarding when establishments make children welcome with a few simple toys and books and, most importantly, a welcoming attitude.
Mark was kind enough to drive us back to Mavis and we're now unwinding and looking forward to our neighbours display of sartorial elegance tomorrow.
