UK 2017

In April my eldest son got married. So even though we were only ‘over here’ a year ago, it was back to the UK for us. This time because of work constraints – Easter before, and a couple of big events at the start of May, we only stayed a couple of weeks. As it turned out I managed to spend a lot of the time working, so we didn’t get to travel around at all. However, we did fit in a couple of day trips and some time with friends.

Calm Center (Three) – We visited a place laden with memories for me and recreate a picture from ten years ago. Two-minute read, 4 pictures

Langstone Mill – Besides being picturesque, Langstone Mill is interesting because it is the site of two mills. Besides the obvious windmill, there was also a tidal mill. Plus a bonus reminisce, and a picture from the seventies. One-minute read, 3 pictures

The Royal Oak & Langstone Mill – We weren’t quite sure what time we were supposed to be arriving for dinner with my brother and his family, so we decided to have a short walk followed by a quick preprandial drink in the Royal Oak.

Watermill – Weald & Downland Living Museum. Who couldn’t resist taking a picture of this watermill with its reflection in the lower pool? there were lots of moorhen chicks and tiny ducklings around in the lower pool, and I’ll confess, I couldn’t resist taking a picture of them. 3 pictures

Vacation Days 3-5 – Working. All I had to do was create the artwork and then upload it all to the printer’s website — That was before we rented two weeks display time on an electronic billboard.
