Sabbatical


We have just returned home after a weeks sabbatical in Sussex. We stayed at a Christian retreat place called West Watch, in the Ashdown Forest which is run by some friends of ours, we have been before and always have a relaxing time. There is no mobile phone reception or internet which adds to the relaxation. We stay in a little cottage, the gardens are beautiful and are visited by many different birds. The weather was lovely and we took our sports car and travelled around the countryside with the hood down!




We took a trip to Hastings and visited my cousin, walking from her hosue down to the Old Town for fish and chips and a walk along the beach




Another day we went further along the South Coast and visited Eastbourne, eating sandwiches on the beach







We are now home and ready (did I say ready?) for a busy week ahead with family visitng and the Easter programme at church

I think sabbaticals should be a part of life for each of us. Time to spend in quiet, seeing the beautiful and time to just be together. Looks like your time was truly a gift to both of you. The pictures of your visits are beautiful! Hope you feel refreshed.
