Having had a restful sleep last night we headed off to Sidlesham, West Sussex to take refuge at our friend’s place. They are still sunning themselves in Spain, but kindly let us go back without them! In April they will be opening a little certificated site with the Caravan Club and we know it will be fantastic. The setting is beautiful as you are surrounded by fields and we’ve been watching the deer and foxes from our ‘van window.
It has such a tranquil, peaceful vibe about it which is just what we’ve needed after all the excitement of the last few days. At night we have heard owls and foxes calling, and there is no light pollution so it is a great place to stargaze.
One of our aims while we’re down here is to buy a decent Ukulele for me (Angela). I have been waiting for two months to visit The Southern Ukulele Store in Bournemouth and today I finally got the chance!
Dean is recovering slowly so we made the hour long journey to the shop, spent half an hour trying about seven of them and decided on a Kala mahogany solid wood Concert Uke – very gorgeous she is too! The guy in the shop (Rob, I think) was very helpful and tuned them all up for me to try. He knew what he was talking about and when we told him the price bracket we were looking at he gave us a good range to choose from, giving the benefits of all of them.
I felt like a little girl in a sweet shop! It was such a treat and Dean was really kind, putting up with my excited chatter. He must still be feeling very green but he was really pleased that I chose a good Uke as we’re going to have great fun playing music together.
