Happy Thanksgiving

Here's where I spent Thanksgiving, what about you?

This is Bodiam Castle in East Sussex. We took a train that stopped 16 times before depositing us in Hastings at stop 17.  Then, the Bodiam bus was a bit late coming,  so we had to hang around in the train station waiting in the cold and wind.  The COG beguiled the tedium by reading us a bus schedule and suggesting various ways we could have gotten there free on the bus, instead of by buying a train ticket, in only 6 or  7 hours each way. We finally arrived at Bodiam a mere 3 hours after we left home.

After walking around the castle for a couple of hours we went home by the same route. All in all, it took 8 hours, of which 2 were spent at the castle.

It was a good day.  And we finished the whole thing with fish and chips from the local chippie. A good Thanksgiving, with no cooking.
