Despite the gales and rain Baby Mother and I took a trip to Fishbourne Roman Palace.
Baby Mother can remember a school trip there where she dropped her purse and all her money fell on a mosaic floor so she jumped down to retrieve it and was accused of trying to steal some tessera….after 38 years we thought it was safe to return. We even got to handle some of the finds which was great fun – just like being in a Time Team episode.
Because of all the rain there had been some flooding of some of the mosaic floors, the worst of it in the baths!
We could actually see the water bubbling up from the ground
There were also 5 coach loads of children but to our relief very well behaved…one school in particular arrived in Roman dress, togas and Laurel wreaths including the teachers which did tickle us.
On my return Harry and I went down the beach so he could stretch his legs and I could feed the crows. They are such fun but trying to wrangle a bag of bread, camera and Harry the hound was nigh on impossible.
