And so the last two weeks of my holiday with Debbie come to an end, and tomorrow I am off to the airport and head back to Florida.
The temperature the last few days has been bitterly cold, and although it got up to 4C (39F) today and the skies were clear and blue, it was just purely and simply C-O-L-D.
Since is was nice and bright today, we headed out to Arundel, a small town in Sussex, close to the South Coast of England and only an hour away. Arundel is an olde worlde town, with an impressive castle and church, a river running through, and lots of old buildings turned into little cafe’s and antique shops. I will add more when I get back to Florida, since I don’t have time now, but here is a sample of the photos we took today.
On the way home we dropped into Tesco, the largest supermarket chain in England, to get some “real” Cheddar Cheese to bring home, and also some CDM Ice Cream as a treat for our last evening together. Got home, ordered a Chinese takeout, since the Chinese food in England tastes more authentic than you find in most restaurants in the USA. It’s not that I don’t like the Chinese food in the USA, I do, however over here it’s just so much tastier. Debbie ordered her favourite – Chicken Curry. I ordered Chicken with Ginger and Spring Onions, which came as I had hoped with large lumps of Ginger – yummy… Oh yes – CDM Ice Cream. For I would imagine 100% of the people living in England, they know what CDM stands for, but for anyone who doesn’t, it’s Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. CDM is the best chocolate in the world. It’s the creamiest, yummiest, just mmm mmm mmm! So having eaten the Chinese, I packed my case (half empty since I am leaving some clothes here and don’t have to take back all the presents I brought either), and then we sat down to a large bowl of ice cream, which was simply out of this world. Yes – we both start our diets on Monday – we both put on a few pounds over the holidays, but you know, holidays are to be enjoyed, and you can’t do that by ignoring good food and drink.
Well that’s all from me until I get back to Florida.
Debbie and I hope you enjoy and new blog, and if you do, please pass it on to your family and friends if you think that they would like it too.
