Weekend with Ian and Sharon - Day 2

A bit of a lie-in with both of not up until 7.30! We then had breakfast. Ann managed poached egg on toast, whilst I opted for the full-English!

On Ian's advice we took a drive to Petworth House - around a thirty minute drive from the Guest-House

It was a grand place, hundreds of paintings and a room full of sculptures. The tunnels underneath the house were open today - but from 1 p.m. which was a bit late for us.

After the visit, we drove back to Worthing and took a closer look round the shops (having found an ideal car-park round the back of T K Maxx.

We arrived back at the Guest House around 3.30 knackered!!

Ian and Sharon arranged a table at a good Chinese Restaurant called 'The China Palace' in Chapel Road for later on this evening. They picked us up at 6.30. The food was excellent - all you can eat for less than £15!! The service went downhill a while later, we think, because they got so busy. We cancelled the main course mainly because we waited so long. In truth, only Ian and I went for the main course and we were already stuffed!

We left at around 9pm, said our good-byes to Ian and Sharon and headed for bed!!!!

We're leaving after breakfast tomorrow, picking Mum up along the way and heading for home...
