Did you guess from the photo in my last post where we went on Tuesday? Well, the cat is now out of the bag: we went to Rye. It is a very picturesque town with a pleasant atmosphere. It has its share of ancient buildings but there is also an upbeat, lively feel to the place. It is one of the Cinque Ports and much is made of the fact that it is in “1066 Country” with vestiges of the Norman Conquest.
We spent our time revisiting the places that we enjoy seeing. This makes for a pretty boring narrative so I will instead display photos showing some of the sights that we saw. It was a rather dull day and this is reflected in the photos which perhaps do not show Rye at its best.
Someone was stirring up these gulls. I disapprove but it at least showed what skillful fliers they are
The day was made memorable by the purchase of a souvenir. I am always on the lookout for silver-tiger rings and today I found one in Rye!
This ring goes on my right hand and almost matches the one on my left hand. So, if ever you meet someone with a silver tiger on each hand, it is likely to be me!
