An Awesome Bank Holiday Weekend

We had a staycation at the weekend - really because we wimped out of camping, but what a good decision that was!

Saturday was spent in London, at the Natural History Museum, wandering around and dodging Barcelona fans heading for Wembley, which pleased DS2 immensely. We then went to a local gastro pub for dinner - yum!

Sunday was spent discovering a new corner of the Kent coast and despite a strong wind we had a brilliant time in brilliant sunshine. Birchington is a good beach to visit - sand, shallow water, some windsurfers and kite surfers to look at, beach huts and a shop that does tea, ice cream and chips. We headed home for fajitas and a rest.

Monday dawned beautiful but with the threat of poor weather heading in from the west, so we went to Chartwell, enjoyed the house and grounds, some tree climbing and a picnic, and only got hit by raindrops when we were nearly home. It didn't do much for the bbq, but we still had it - only indoors except for the hardy cooks.
