Touring Kent in the rain

It was a really gloomy, rainy morning & after Naomi & Curtis showed up Lucy made us all a big breakfast. Curtis had homework to do....he needed to write about what he thought a school would be like in the future & also made a model of it. We all had some input to give him ideas & set out for a ride around in the rain before going to buy supplies.

This is a private road leading to Royal St George's...where they hold the British Open every so many years. We ignored the "private" & just drove down it!

No one was playing in the miserable weather!

This is the pro shop

The club house with security cameras - they didn't see us!

This is the view from near the ferry in Ramsgate...on a nice day you can see France!

This is in Broadstairs - the home of Charles Dickens

This is Bleak House where he did all his writing looking out over the ocean. Must have been a day like this when they chose that name!

We took a trip to a pet store & then on to Tesco's to find supplies for Curtis's project. I was happily snapping away taking pictures in there when I felt someone tap me on the shoulder! It was a security guard asking me who I was working for! Apparently it was not allowed but I got away with a few! To see them go here.

We went back to the house & helped Curtis with his "futuristic" school

He was pretty proud of himself. To see more pics go here

It wasn't raining too bad so Popster, Naomi, Curtis & I walked, while Terry & Lucy drove, to the local fish & chip shop for a late lunch.

For more pics of the rainy tour go here

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
