... were welcomed by the chief assistant to the assistant chief …
… settled to our cofy rooms ...
… where a gift and a name-plate were a welcome sight
Later on we could explore the hotel's extensive grounds
Food is always important, this on the informal Friday evening
Our President sported his Tibetan hat
Peter had constructed his very aptly
Most had heeded the joining instructions and wore fancy hats
Even the judges joined in the theme!
Without doubt the highlight of the evening was a local Troupe of nuns whe sang extracts from the sound of music.
Thdey alternated with senior-brother goatherds.
and a chicken!
On the Saturday some made an excursion to the Arundel Wetlands
Where in an absolutely silent (electric) boat we had a short tour
just six people to a boat
This section is open and free so we saw a few ducks …
… and a distant view of Arundel Castle
There was also a nice quiet spot
There was a lot to enjoy at the Amberley Museum …
… like this Lambretta carrier
It is interesting to see how Public Utilities made use of 'vehicles' …
… like the bicycle and the sevice van
There is even an early electric car!
There are also many narrow-gauge relway artefact ..
… such as this locomotive
Finally a train ride ...
… providing the crossing gates were shut!
Some even went to the castle!
On Saturday there was a different class of entertainer
Another well-known couple on the dance floor
Mrs O'Shea (snr) with two daughters and a son-in-law
and here we all are!
