Goooood day, my friends!
I haven't joined in with CSI for a good long time. I keep LOOKING.....but....
then this Monthly Case File popped up:
Hmmmn. Buildings. CASTLES, maybe? Our holiday. Perfect fit!
I'm gonna share their LOs here, cos they're sooo beautiful in such different
Helen's.....CAS, just the way I LOOOVE it!
Look at how Lizzy has combined those colours...& the frames!
So, this is what I came up with, based on the sketch.
from the 'Evidence' & of course, my 'Testimony' is
about a building!
MORE UK PHOTOS...
I thought I'd take you through our journey of discovering this amazing
In the train on our way to BOGNOR REGIS [a seaside resort we thought
would be interesting to visit], we saw a MASSIVE castle out the window as the
train stopped at a tiny station called 'ARUNDEL'. So, I googled it as we
continued to BOGNOR.....which turned out closed up, hunkered down, with
little open and a cold pebble beach.....sooooo we hopped back on the train to
Walked the 1/2 mile into the VILLAGE & found a nice pub [St Mary's] to eat
Now, I'm sure some of you peeps will laugh at me taking
a photo of wood. But for us it was AMAZING!
[Please note heart banner over mantle piece, scrappers!!!]
The food was GOOOOOOOD!
Then we wandered around trying to find the castle entry.
It was soooo big, it filled the horizon.
Was this it?
Nah! Just the entrance to the local C of E church. Nice one &
Rather large walls to scale!! Loved the tulips:)
Explored the 'keep' where the Lord could survey
all that was his [probably still is!] & check out attacking marauders!
Shame the moat is now empty! That'd keep us
pesky [but well paying!] tourists out. No crocodiles here Mitra ;)
Then inside the Castle:
No photos allowed, as they DO live here...at times!
This is their PRIVATE CHAPEL inside the castle.
Nice little spot to pray!
Then, of course, there is also the OUTSIDE chapel:
I swung around the other way:
It's a decent walk from the castle!
And finally, my favest shots:
Thank you for a MAGICAL, unexpectedly amazing day, Arundel...
We LOOOOOOOOOVE you!!!
Byeeeee ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
