It’s always fun to join in with Rinda’s Summer Scavenger Hunt! I’ve written down this year’s list in a little notebook that I carry with me everywhere. I have made a start on that list today, as we’ve been on a motorbike ride over to Rye, a historic town to the east. Incidentally, it’s the first time I have been on the back (except for round the block) and it feels OK. Just as well, as we are motorcycling up North next week!
Plenty of nice lampposts in Rye. Got a feeling I might be taking a few lampposts, I know we have some pretty ones in Worthing with hanging baskets full of flowers at this time of year.
Sign in a language other than English
Rye is not so far from the channel port of Dover, so I was hoping for some signs in a language other than English. Here’s one about the Norman Conquest of 1066 translated into French. The ‘Mind Your Head’ sign has been translated into French and German. We saw this sign as we were climbing the tower of St Mary’s Church.
Birds on a Wire
I am thinking that ‘Birds on a Wire’ could be difficult so how about A Bird on a Post? This black-headed gull had it’s beady eyes on my sandwich! Is this a cheat?
while it’s friends showed off on the pavement in front of us:
Rye is a very pretty historic town,full of really pretty old houses and cobbled streets. Here’s some more photos that are not part of the Scavenger Hunt.
I was fascinated by the front doors:
We climbed the tower on the church for wonderful views:
and were interested to see the preparations that were being made for the filming of ‘Mapp and Lucia’, a drama to be shown on BBC. The author of the original books lived in Rye.
