Listening to: too early for anyone else to be up yet
Reading: The Haunting, Hope Tarr - enjoyed this one - ending worked very well (and was the one I would've chosen, too *g*)
On the Tuesday, we went to Arundel: the castle was lovely, with a very Gothic interior (the library was particularly good). My favourite bits were the medieval parts of the castle; the views from the keep were stunning. (This is the new, Gothicky bit.)
There was a medieval encampment and we saw a jousting tournament – really exciting. It was boiling hot so the poor riders must’ve really felt it under 70lbs of armour. The horses were absolutely gorgeous.
This is mid-joust, with one horse visible along this side of the tilting rail. And it's done at full gallop. Not a canter or a trot. Lots of lances were broken...
(And I had a resurgence of a lightbulb moment I had a while back – still debating whether the best fit would be Modern Heat or a Medical. Am inclining towards the latter, which is good as I already have four MH ideas lined up.)
After the castle closed, we headed for the sea and went for a stroll along the promenade at Worthing. Again, fabulous sea and lots of shingle and seagulls.
