We packed up and left the lodge. They (The Holiday Services Manager) asked if everything was OK, of course Mal said no, several things that we brought up previously but mainly no cushions for the outside seating. Mal said no problem we would just put it on Trip Advisor. She asked him not to but to send it all to her, having written it already, no problem! We will see what she comes up with!
We then went to the country park for a walk and we also went into the visitors centre. All the occasions we have been there and we never realised that Romney Marsh is known as the Fifth Continent!
The Ingoldsby Legends (1837) recognised the importance of Romney Marsh as a fifth continent through the statement ‘The world, according to the best geographers, is divided into Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Romney Marsh’. Stretching between the counties of Kent and East Sussex, Romney Marsh is one of England’s most distinctive and unique landscapes. Much of the area lies below sea level and the landscape is one of wide fields, endless skies, meandering ditches, isolated farms and villages. At its southern tip is the great sweeping expanse of shingle which makes up the Dungeness peninsula, the largest shingle cusp in Europe.
Every day is a learning day!
We also went all the way round the community garden. Mal would like to start a similar project at the Jubilee Centre.
We also bought a very interesting book. It is 622 pages long!
Maybe we can learn some more.
We stopped in Hythe on the way back for lunch at our favourite place Truly Scrumptious, they are consistently good. We also had a pot of tea which came with a tea cosy. We sat outside.
Back home and it was watering all the plants, home and allotment. All the washing was up to date as we had a washer dryer in the lodge.
