King for Just One Day

Blearily we dragged luggage and 6 litres of water (we were told we needed at least 3l each), walking sticks, hats, sunscreen, fly nets etc to a waiting coach.

Oooh, I like a bit of Wensleydale Grommit.

After an evening of getting organized, changing the suitcase to B&B mode we said goodbye to Bramble Cottage, a fantastic little barn conversion that has been so comfortable as home base for the last little while.

Abbey, Art and just plain awesome

Huge day today, no time for photos (bloody WordPress app on this infernal iPad playing up, will edit it later). We awoke blearily, still tired from the previous day and breakfasted leisurely before training then walking to Westminster Abbey.

Orbs, towers and globes

We woke to an alarm, after another strange night sleep, breakfasted, packed, rugged up (we learned about being cold yesterday so was determined to have enough layers to manage it today) and headed to the West Kensington district rail station, headed east to Tower Hill in time to queue for tickets to the castle known … Continue reading »
