Change of pace

Well after 13 and a half nearly 14 hours on the plane we landed at Heathrow. Luckily the plane was not full so I was able to go down the back and lie across 3 seats and get some sleep...after watching 4 movies, listening to some music and trying to get comfortable......sitting for that long is very difficult!! We got off the plane quite quickly, the had to queue for immigration,  the crowd shepherding man near the front took pity on Eve, thought she was suffering from all the queueing so took us to the front and put us straight through. Eve said that was one advantage of being old!!  ☺ We took a while to find the bus that took us to the hire car place, then the young man helping us took AGES to sort out the car.....mind you to me it was now about 3am so my tolerance level was low!! Lol! We eventually got underway and found our way to Selsey.....only one mistake in the navigating.....we arrived about 11.30 UK time...said our hellos to Eves brother and sister inlaw and went to bed!
Next morning dawned cloudy and dull, probably because it was only 6am when hubby appeared with a cuppa!! He was off for a walk. I was slower approaching the day but had a walk along the sea wall
Was a beautiful day, sunny and warm.
Houses back from the sea wall
Later we went down the  High Street to get cash and stamps and saw a couple of typical English pubs.....love these buildings
Then I saw this  wonderful house tucked in between two shops
How cute is that?? The owner was out painting his front wall when we went past the first time, luckily it has wet paint signs on it as it was the perfect height to sit on !! 😊
Today we are off to Manchester to see son no. 2!! I am looking forward to that. But first we have 200 miles to travel and motorways to navigate!
Have a great day.
