26th - 29th December - Boxing Day and the rest of the week!!

Boxing Day
Still away at our hotel
We had an early lunch so managed to take some photos of part of the buffet lunch, didn't take the hot food buffet as peeps were there!

Pm we  were taken by coach to Canterbury where we managed some retail therapy for an hour before going to the cathedral for evensong sitting in the choir stalls. I wasn't supposed to take photos but.....
These were the first sighting of fields that had flooded on our way to Canterbury

 It was a beautiful sunny afternoon as we arrived at the Cathedral
 There was a life size nativity scene in the courtyard
 Inside the Cathedral before the service and before many people arrived

Friday 27th Returning home
We called in to see Carol's daughter who moved from hastings to Ashford on 20th Dec. They were very pleased to see us
The journey home had similar scenes of fields that looked like lakes/sea 
 and stormy skies and more rain

We are finally home and glad to say no storm damaged and my son who had stayed here for the Christmas period had left it immaculate, you wouldn't know anyone had stayed and the cats were very content to have stayed at home too!!


  1. Sounds like a lovely time away Lynne, glad you had no damage to your home. It would be good to arrange to meet up one holiday. I love popping over to your blog when life does not get in the way and I will do my best to become a better blogger as I do enjoy it when I get time to do so. A Happy and Peaceful New Year to you and yours xxx
