We had arranged this weekend break sometime ago, but over the last week with the good weather we thought we may have struck lucky. We drove to Rye in glorious sunshine, and when we arrived it was like early summer, with people walking the streets eating ice creams and wearing shorts. We were staying at the George in Rye which is right in the centre of Rye along the high street. The parking was awkward but the hotel was superb, lovely room, and wonderful food. So it was unpack at the hotel, and out into the streets to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine.
Rye is extremely picturesque, with cobbled streets and Tudor style buildings, we walked through the church yard and around the small streets away from the high street. The sun picked out the buildings beautifully, and also showed up the avian residents on the chimney pots. Surprisingly the Herring Gulls were not as noisy as I would have expected, but they could be seen paired up and sitting on most of the roofs around the town.
