Actually, not quite as bad as it sounds! We were going to take our caravan to Northumberland for Easter, but when we saw the weather forecast decided it was a long way to go if it was going to be horrible! So, we had a quick change of plans, stayed at home over the Easter weekend (where I got lots of scrapping done!) and then took the caravan to a site near Bognor Regis. Well, that was the plan. We keep our 'van on a storage site and we duly turned up on Tuesday at 8.50am to hook up - but the police were there executing a search warrant. We were told they would be another hour - at midday we finally managed to get on to the site - to say I was unhappy was putting it mildly! I had planned that we would be down at Bognor by midday and then spend the afternoon at Arundel Castle. As it was, we were not down there and settled until nearly 5pm, so our afternoon trip went by the by. We did go in to Bognor for a stroll along the beach which was pleasant!
Wednesday dawned bright and dry, but the forecast was definitely better for later in the week, so we decided to go on the Bluebell Railway. Just as well we did, as it then rained for the next 4 hours! However, we were tucked up in our own compartment, with our picnic and had a wonderful time!
Thursday was sunny when we woke up - yay! We decided to go to Leonardslee Gardens for the day and so afer packing a picnic off we went. The gardens were lovely, even though they are a little late in blooming, there was still lots to see and some lovely blossom on the trees and camelias.
