Canadian Cousins, Fishbourne Palace & Swanbourne
Malcolm & Jacqueline arrived Wednesday afternoon from Calgary. We wandered along the riverside walk by the Arun and ended up at the Arun View where we sampled Sussex ale and stayed on for a meal. A leisurely start Thursday was followed by a visit to Fishbourne Roman Palace then lunch at the Gribble Inn, Oving, excellent beer and food. We decided our penance would be a walk round Swanbourne Lake, Arundel where the wildfowl benefited from two bags of birdseed Sue bought from the café. An evening of chat, port and The Glenlivet they brought finished off a lovely visit. We all left early in the morning, they to Oxford and Malcolm’s old college, and we to Tower Hill to meet Penny for lunch after her business trip. We enjoyed a meal at the Tapas Bar next to the Chamberlain.
