The last full day of holiday today so, of course, I wake at half past three!  Doh!!!

Yesterday was great.  After a leisurely start we set off out to visit the Observatory Science Centre at Herstmonceux (how on EARTH do you pronounce that???) and spent a wonderful three hours or so looking, listening and doing.  Once home again, we had a great swim.  It was a hot, sunny day with a refreshing breeze and the pool was so inviting!

Today we will have to do some housework.  I know the Barn receives a good clean between guests but we don't wish to leave a mess so out come the dusters, sprays and sweepers!  We will also pack everything we don't need for tomorrow and get it into the car.  Minimal hassle tomorrow morning is the aim.
We will swim too.  If it's a hot day we might swim  twice . . . you never know.

Look at that blue sky!!!
Lovely lilies and reeds on the pond there.  Very attractive.

Edited later (at 6:49) to add  that it is raining.  Booooooooooooooooooooooo!

Bucketing down here too, but should brighten and get hot later so just right for a swim or two after the dusting ...

In answer to your question:
Herst as in 'first'
Mon as in 'monsoon'
Ceux as in 'zoo'
'Hirstmonzoo' ;)

Have a wonderful day!
