I didn't do a lot of cooking, just a great deal of eating. I thought it might be fun to share some pictures from West Sussex and show just how magical that part of the world is.
The Red Lion Pub has a lovely garden in the back where time stands still, it's meant for lazy, sun drenched lunches.
I loved the Rules of the Inn. I left my cudgel at home!
The village green is surrounded by the prettiest cottages.
The trees weren't quite out yet, but the strolls in the woods where so peaceful.
We came across this adorable little cottage in the middle of nowhere.
There were so many little farms tucked away.
I think this was my favorite cottage.
To cool off we went down to the seaside! I remember many a vacation when I was a child shivering in the car, peaking through a rain streaked windscreen waiting for the sun to come out. No such worries last week, just glorious sunshine.
I love that the English take their dogs with them to the beach. There's another enchanting little pub down the road from here that makes the most amazing fish and chips. A perfect end to a perfect day!
It was a wonderful break and I came home fully recharged to five very happy faces!
