Visiting Winston's Churchill's House

We visited Chartwell, the private home of Winston Churchill and his family. It was full of memorabilia from his life, including his cigar and hats among other things. You could not take photos, but the guides thought it might be okay for me to draw some of the less important things. I drew one of his silk top hats and his cigars and was amazed to see that he collected cigar boxes just like me! I now plan to read all about him and his wife Clementine.

Today we traveled through the countryside on a steam engine train to visit Bodiam Castle, which was built in 1385.  It has a moat filled with water surrounding it.

I am finding British pub food very nice.

It was necessary to have a hearty meal after an exhausting day of painting.
