Today I made a 2nd attempt to get to Ightham Mote - a moated manor house built around 1320.
It's a very relaxing place to be and the sun shone nearly all the time I was there!! I was last there in July 2012
A scone for lunch..
and as the sun was shining and I was passing Buchan Country Park, I had stroll around the lake..
to discover a very posy Cormorant who was sitting on a branch a couple of metres away from the water's edge..
Lovely to be out in the sunshine!!
