During the summer we paid a visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. It proved to be a fun way to spend a few hours, though it did feel a little strange seeing armed police patrolling what is in effect a museum. I suppose that is just the way things are now.
Anyway, not to dwell on the state of society, the first attraction is HMS Warrior. It’s a beast of a ship and I had no chance of fitting it into one photo.
For my first weekend wander in a long time, I’d like to show off a few photos from our family visit to The Llama Park in East Sussex. It’s a great place to spend a couple of hours in some very beautiful English countryside.
This Llama is very tame and friendly, and wanders loose around the grounds. There are lots of Llamas and you can even take part in a Llama walk.
I love the cheeky little Alpacas.
But my highlight of the day was seeing this peacock admiring his reflection, or perhaps sussing out a rival.
Feeding time was my daughter’s highlight.
If you are looking for a few hours of fun with some very friendly animals, check out the Llama Park.
Next week I hope to share some pictures of the historic ships at Portsmouth’s Dockyard.
You may have seen my post yesterday with a wander around the cathedral of Chichester. Today I wanted to shared some pictures of the Bishops Garden, which also has some beautiful views of the cathedral. Again this is open to the public to enjoy and makes a lovely base for a picnic or just to enjoy the summer sun.
My favourite flower here has to be the Bearded Iris.
There is also a lot of history in Chichester. I wish we’d had time to do more, especially the 1.5 mile circular walk tracing the old wall around the city – details in the pictures below.
I hope I’ve inspired you to visit this beautiful city, I would certainly love to go back.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
