  We were going to do the tour of The Tower so headed to the underground and got the tube to Westminster. First though was a walk down past Big Ben, and The Houses of Parliament, the Palace of Westminster and on to Westminster Abbey and then the Jewel Tower.  The 3m high statue of George […]

Posted on March 29, 2017 by Sioux under General

  We needed to be at Buckingham Palace very early, to ensure we got a good view point to watch the Changing the Guard ceremony. Although it was a long wait, we had fun chatting to other tourists and a very friendly policeman, who could get rather stern when people climbed onto the statues on […]

Laid up in Wales

  And so I sleep in the 51st different bed since October 2015!    Here I am in the seaside town of Swansea, for what was supposed to be an over night stay before starting a new job, and has turned into a 2-night stay, lying on a bed staring at the ceiling, due to […]

Family holiday fun time #4 – Day 1 in London town

Posted on by Sioux under General

  From Liverpool we headed to London, where we had 5 days to play. The weather was the best London had experienced for a long while and the heat was quite something.   We stayed at a lovely hotel in Belgrave Road, within easy walking distance of Pimlico Underground station and also a good walk […]

Family holiday fun time #3 – Out & about in Liverpool

Posted on March 24, 2017 by Sioux under General

  We bbq’d, partied, tramped around the city centre, visited the museum, explored the Albert docks, lunched at The Shankly Hotel; and purely by accident had a brilliant party evening at The Liverpool pub.  The Shankly Hotel is a tribute to the life and career of one of football’s finest managers. The décor, from floor […]

Family holiday fun time #2 – Making memories in Liverpool

Posted on March 21, 2017 by Sioux under General

  I have good friends in Liverpool, that my daughter hasn’t seen in years, so we headed there from Tonbridge. My grandson is also a Liverpool Football Club supporter and I really wanted to take him to Anfield. Despite the wet weather, we donned raincoats and headed out. We did the usual touristy stuff like […]

  A relaxing holiday break was in order. With one of my daughters and her family coming to visit I made sure my camera batteries were well charged.   Much excitement as I waited at the airport for them to arrive. My Bear now also had a playmate! Our first stop was Tonbridge, where we […]

Those magnificent men in their flying machines

  The coastal village of Reculver, to the east of Herne Bay, was the site of the testing of the bouncing bomb used by the “Dam Busters” during the war. While on a break between assignments, my sister suggested we head for Herne Bay and the airshow. I didn’t need a 2nd invitation. An air show […]

Day tripping #6 – walkabout in Dover

Posted on March 9, 2017 by Sioux under General

  From the castle, we walked down the hill to the old St James’ Church known as “Dover’s tidy ruin” which stands at the end of St James’ Street, at the foot of Castle Hill.  It did not exist at the Conquest, but evidence shows it was built before 1291 so may be ascribed to […]
