Castles, Paintings and Wart-hogs!!

Today, Andrea said we were going Somewhere Special!!

First of all, we came to Hove Train station!!
I love those Du Barry signs!!

We had to get one train ......

And we got off at a place called Barn Ham.
I guess they keep piggies here...

Then we got on another train.

There's a castle over there!!!
Andrea said we were at Arundel!!

Wow! That's quite impressive!
Andrea said that people still live in that Castle and they charge lots and lots of money to go in, even if you just want to look at the gardens.

On the way into town we lost some stuff!!

And we met a turtle, like that guy that lives in Barcelona!

Gosh! They have the escape Route of Charles 2nd!!
That's a long way to run away though, 615 miles!!

That's the River Arun...

These tiles show a map of River Arun.... it joins up with River Thames in London!!! Gosh...

That's pretty...

We tied a CD here too!

And that's Arundel's coat of arms too.

Which way do we go???

We went past a very pretty lady wearing pearls!!

Wow! That's impressive!

Down here, they had Ghost Stories, but they wouldn't let us in because we were on our own!!
Dang it, Sullivan would've loved to hear stories about Ghosts and Zombies!

I hope they get to visit, then we could both go in together!!!

We walked past some allotments too, with lots of veggies growing!

Coo!! Some building, eh?!

I like Arundel, even in the rain!!

We brought some greetings cards to lose, too, and we wrapped them up in plastic bags first!

A cathedral! Let's go see!

Gosh!! A big dark tower....

And a cleopatra needle thing...!

We had a good look round the Cathedral but we didn't take any photos inside. we bought some postcards though, but then we started feeling cold, because we'd been walking in the rain and the wind.

So then we decided to look for somewhere to eat.
Now, that's a view!!

There's a Pink Dragon, like Dilly!! I wonder if they're related??

We found a cafe and we arrived just in time for an All Day Breakfast.
I People Watched at the window while it was being cooked!

We also had a coffee!!

And finally Breakfast arrived!
(Sullivan - Andrea said to tell you that it's Tofu or Quorn!)

After we'd finished eating, it had stopped raining, so we went and did some Window Shopping!!

We found an Animal Shop with a Wart Hog in it!!
He's one of Sullivan's relatives!

And a Mouse too! he looked very happy though!

I don't know what this contraption does but it looks like it's from a torture chamber!!!

And we left another card here tied to a bannister!

Gosh, that's a pretty floor!! Andrea says that the White Rose belongs to a Royal family (and the red rose belongs to another royal family, and one of them is Tudor!!! It's all to do with the War of the Roses but Andrea's not very good at that part of history!)

We went back into town again and saw this very pretty doorway made out of collage!!
(It's the same place we saw that lady with the pearls)

Down by the river, they even had remains of a Domincan priory!!

Then we noticed there was a craft Fayre so we went in for a look!

when we came out of there, we saw there was an art exhibition over the road!
We went to see that as well!

Hello! Meet my friend Tony!!!
He's an Artist you know!!!

And here's my other friend Jilly!!

We went into the exhibition and Andrea bought a painting. It had been very carefully wrapped up, and then because we were getting tired, we decided to come home.

Almost at Arundel Train station......

And we then waited for our train back to Barn Ham...

It'svery green round here....

And then we got another train back to Hove.

And a little walk down the road....

When we got back, I showed our new painting to all my friends and told them about what we did today!! It was very exciting!


  1. What a fun packed trip! That Ghost trip thing sounds exciting!

  2. I like your painting!

    That seemed like a grand adventure. You got to see so many cool things!
