2010 - ARUNDEL CASTLE, PORTSMOUTH & THE ISLE OF WIGHT

IT SEEMS THAT CASTLES & PUBS WERE WHAT I DID ON THIS TRIP

ARUNDLE CASTLE

I AM HEADING TO ENGLAND TO SEE MY MUM IN PORTSMOUTH.

I HAD BEEN TO ARUNDEL CASTLE WITH HER & DAD A FEW YEARS PRIOR & AS IT IS ON MY WAY, I WILL HAVE ANOTHER LOOK..

ONLY FROM THE OUTSIDE.

OF COURSE, I CHECKED IT WAS OPEN BEFORE I LEFT - RIGHT?

STILL - IT WAS A NICE VISIT.

ARUNDEL STATION..

I HAD A SANDWICH IN HERE. ROAST BEEF WITH MARMALADE. SOUNDS VERY ODD BUT IT WAS GOOD.
