We were in Hastings, and yesterday morning we were enjoying the excellent audio tour at Battle Abbey. We learned a lot about sneaky Norman battle tactics, and spent some time dissuading Bernard from buying weaponry in the gift shop.
Then we returned to Hastings to spend the afternoon doing seaside activities such as eating fish & chips with the Pixeldivas, and watching Morris Dancers with Clair.
Pete caught his annual sunburn. It’s partly my fault for packing woolly hats and gloves, not sunhats and sun cream. It has been much less gloomy than expected. We did not know that Hastings celebrated May Day in so much style.
In fact, there was so much win in the weekend that we thought we might try to arrange some sort of gathering on Hastings next May Day weekend. Who’s in?
It’s all happening in Hastings.
And it’s all going to happen again next year.
Dissuading? I was trying to encourage him! Whoops.
Yes, yes you were, weren’t you.
We’d definitely be up for a Hastings May Day fest. 🙂
