Sussex and Mail

I got a 3rd postcard from Gladys today!

Thank you Gladys and Becky! It's gone straight onto my postcard wall!

Last week we went on a road trip to Sussex. I haven't got any pictures to show you as I only got 4, and they're going in the scrapbook :) But I can tell you a bit of what happened :)

We set out in the morning and made our way, yet again, to Kent. We've been there so much lately! We traveled all the way through Kent and into the county of Sussex. I haven't been here since I was a kid.

Our first stop was the seaside town of Hythe. It has a pretty peddle beach and a fab chip shop! Gus shared my chips as we sat in the car :D Next we went onto another seaside town, Camber Sands. My Mum used to go here on holiday when she was little.

We went to the beach, but the tide was so far in that there was hardly any beach there! We did see a MASSIVE seagull there though! We had a walk round and visited some gift shops in the area.

We then went to Rye, which is a little town that's full of antique and craft shops. There was so much stuff there! Gus loved the little needle felted donkey I bought. They got on really well!

Our last stop was yet another seaside town - Hastings. I have to admit - it wasn't my favourite place. It was a bit grubby. But we took a walk down the seafront anyway, and bought some postcards.

We were stuck in a 2 hour traffic jam on the way back to the Dartfort tunnel on the way home. It was sooooo boring. Gus kept us entertained though with tales from all the LV swaps he's been on. He's been a very busy turkey!

This will probably be our last adventure :( I'm in the middle of finishing off his scrapbook, and will then think about sending him home next week. I'm really gonna miss him!

  1. Oh my writing looks so awful on that postcard!! :P

    I'm sooooo excited to see Gus again - I have a shelf of his scrapbooks and I can't wait to add another one!!

    I'll be sad to say goodbye to Gladys though. I'm so used to her ALWAYS being there. She's so small that she fits in my pocket!
