Wakehurst Place

Wakehurst Place is the outpost of Kew Gardens set in West Sussex. We had a trip down and a nice walk around the gardens.

A few days after we got back from Symi we had a trip up to the Wirral for a friends daughters wedding. Not wanting to rush of after work I took the day of and we pottered our way across the country.

We stopped at Castletown house near Moreton-in-the-Marsh.

It is National Trust but with rather a different feel to it. The house had been open by the previous owner and many of the signs are still used around the house.

The light in the rooms was fantastic.

And there were some really odd features.

And one magnificent long gallery.

A nice house and well worth the stop.

Day 15: the Way Home

It was the usual early alarm call to get us up for the bus to drive down to the ferry.

All went well and we had a chance to watch the sun come up over the harbour.

All the boats starting to get underway.

The boat was away on time. And as we sailed towards Rhodes we had a wonderful view of the east coast of Symi bathed in the early morning light.

Rhodes was full of cruise ships.

When we got to the hotel we found a sun longer and slept and relaxed until the pick up for the airport.

Flight got away on time very full so no space to spread out. Did get a window seat but window froze over so no great views.

Landed on time collected all our missed calls found the taxi and got home to fall into bed. Our holiday over for the year!
