Swanbourne Lake Arundel.
I am so glad that we did.
I wish I could have found more to buy at Ford - but I look back on that episode as being only a very small part of our day out.
We drove to Arundel afterwards.....and a little beyond.
We have walked at Swanbourne Lake once before and I knew there was an interesting looking little cafe there.
This was to be our venue for a late breakfast.
I am guessing that it might have once been a lodge house on the Arundel Castle Estate.
We sat in the big square bay window, overlooking the lake and all the bird life.
We were surrounded by ornamental teapots.
There were masses of water fowl.
Here the birds were trampling over each other and a man's shoes (he was feeding them) to get the prize titbits.
It was lovely to see the blue sky again.
Just a brief time....we are promised more grey and rain at the weekend.
The snow lingers in a valley on The Downs.
