HOLIDAYS IN EASTBOURNE DAY 10

Today we were invited by Anne's friend Maureen and her husband for lunch in a local Pub. They live near Little Hampton which is not far from Brighton.

It was a nice and sunny day and we arrived around noon.




They live in this lovely typical English house, and we were greeted by 12 year old Rushka still in very good shape except the hind legs.



I loved the beams which give the room such a cosy look.



the very welcoming living room, and the egg cups collection in the bathroom. Maureen collects egg cups like I collect my cats !



I was introduced to Dolly the cat, sleeping in her private "bedroom" in the kitchen under spices and besides the bin.

Then we walked over the the Pub.



It was very nice, unfortunately it was too windy to eat outside so we only sat a little there after lunch



I had a jacket potato with prawns, the potatos have such a special taste in the UK. The icecream too was delicious.

The whole afternoon we sat in their garden and enjoyed the sun and a cup of tea.



When we returned home we went by this very special house which looked like an old petrol station but was a private house !



and we drove back through this beautiful landscape !

I love that house, it looks so very English and cosy. And walking distance to a pub with such good food? I think they have it all.
