Bodiam Castle

Yesterday was a bank holiday and the weather was lovely so we went to Bodiam Castle It was just lovely. They had people in clothing of the day giving us a history lesson on the place as well as a fabulous play inside the castle walls. You could even try on a suit of armor if you wished, or try your hand at archery. We also went to a pub for lunch in the garden and my little nephew had a play on the lovely climbing equipment. This was a beer festival happening, and over 40 to choose from! I started with a local cider, then had a light beer to follow. Wonderful baked potato and salad for lunch. A lovely slow relaxing day.
Today we are planning on going to some second hand shops, what i call op shops! Now that is my kind of shopping to do!
