We had taken a week off last week because we wanted to go to Rye for a few days. You must understand that with us nothing goes the easy way. Whatever it is, it’s always accompanied by obstacles. I’ve told you before that we’ve had quite a tough year because of my health. That finally was over by the end of September. So initially we wanted to go to Rye, our favorite holiday spot in England, on November 5th. Because we really needed a break and because of Guy Fawkes day. But in that week we had to many appointments that we actually couldn’t postpone. Then a week later. And what took me by surprise? Guy Fawkes Day is celebrated in Rye on the 12th! So we were lucky! How did that happen right.
A few days in Rye
Our regular B&B was unfortunately fully booked, they expected 40.000 visitors on the 12th in Rye, and when I called a hotel, a room happened to be cancelled! Well, was luck finally with us again? The day before we were due to leave, my father was hospitalized for the fourth time in a short period with heart problems. Such an obstacle. But after consultation with the doctor, we could go with peace of mind. And what a wonderful time we had!
The procession was on the saturday evening when we arrived and was super fun to watch and the bonfire so impressive. So nice to experience that. It was great to stand among all the other people and enjoy the festivities. We were also so lucky with the weather, every day we were outside all day. It only stormed and rained on Tuesday, but walking along the sea in Hastings with a storm is just wonderful! In the evening we ate in our favorite pub The Standard and of course at Simply Italian.
Doing nothing special, but having the time of my life!
The advantage of going out of season is that you are much more likely to chat with the locals. And of course I love that, getting the feeling that you live there! We go to Rye so often there isn’t much we haven’t seen and yet it was our first time to Duncheness. Very special, Gerben immediately loved it. It reminded me a lot of Mad Max, steam punk. And I don’t like that at all. But the fresh crab made up for it.
Of course we went to the nature reserve in Rye, what a peace there. And then walked through Rye and of course had something to eat at Simon the pieman. In Hastings we did some shopping and ate coffee and cake. Didn’t do anything special but these are the things we enjoy. And just to have some days together is so good. I kept saying, oh what a wonderful holiday! I am grateful.
What am I wearing today?
My new navy midi skirt. I never liked navy that much but I am appreciating it more and more. It is a very easy colour to combine. But you know me, I like a monochrome look. Wearing a old glitter sweater and a blouse underneath. Should have checked better, the blouse is not straight at the bottom. Details, details…. Blue sneakers, blue earrings, blue bracelet and a colourful necklace, with blue…. All the accessories are plastic.
Back to normal life again, which is good because we had a marvelous time!
