October Sunshine

Had a lovely day today.   It was our 41st Wedding Anniversary, and we decided to mosey out and enjoy the sunshine.  It's not often that we do this these days as OH can't walk far; and let's face it this summer has been virtually non-existent.  Any sunny days we have had I have grabbed in the garden playing with my Paint Fusion bit and bobs.

Isn't this setting fab!

We started the afternoon by lunching at one of our family's favourite little tea rooms.  Fabulous little place, with a lovely garden with a stream meandering through it.  Chickens, ducks and geese etc for visiting children to feed, plants for sale, free range eggs for sale, a little craft shop and fabulous food.  Home-made cakes to die for!  I had a really nice Brie & Bacon melt Salad, and OH had an all day breakfast, - the works plus toast and marmalade!  (this is normally a firm favourite in the family).  It was quite busy for a Monday in October!  Obviously everybody was making the most of the sunshine.

Fisherman on Goring Beach

We then mosied down toward Worthing and along the coast road, stopping for a while at Goring:

Littlehampton River

And then we finally ended up at Littlehampton, and I had a little stroll along the Riverside and had my first icecream of the year!

Stroll in the sunshine!

Had to include this picture of a young swan who was taking a walk, alongside the river. This is him/her on
its way back, having gone to the pier and back!

Hope everybody else had a good day.
