Rye and Camber Sands
01.10.2012 16 °C
I was going to go into London today but changed my mind in favour of going to the beach with Neil and Kate. We went to Rye today and to Camber Sands. It was very stormy and rainy at the beach. It reminded me of Long Beach on Vancouver Island; huge rollers and lovely soft yellow sand. There were huge sand dunes. Neil's hat threatened to blow off so he had to wear it backwards. There were 4 guys out hopping the waves on their wind surfers. Neil pitched the tennis ball into the waves for the dogs to retrieve using one of those long-handled ball flinger things. Afterwards, we went into the ancient town of Rye and did some looking around in the shops. There are some very old buildings there and some streets that were still cobblestone. We both took lots of pictures. Neil found a couple of carved wooden ducks that he just had to have and I found a few things for my Playroom. Neil drove most of the way to Camber Sands so that he could get used to driving on the left side of the road. On the way there, Kate was tutoring him on the rules of the road in England. I was in the back seat with the 2 dogs. Squishy in a Toyota Yaris! On the way home, Kate drove and the dogs, Neil and I slept. I'm starting to relax into my holiday.
