It came and went with amazing speed and yet we didn't get as much done as we'd hoped. We visited Ali and stayed overnight. We did go up to London for a day but it rained constantly and the whole world had decided to go to The Natural History Museum! The queues were horrendous so we tried the V & A but that only really appealed to me. Later we went to China Town for a meal and then we watched a traditional Chinese dragon dance performed on the street in the pouring rain. The dancers were accompanied by a band of drummers and other muscians. It was amazing and we loved it. The crowds loved it too. Unfortunately walking round London Tony twisted/pulled muscles in his foot and was unable to do much walking for the rest of the week. So on Friday my parents came for the day to visit and we went for a walk along the harbour front at Littlehampton. The photo shows blue skies and sunshine but behind us was a sky that was almost black in colour. We managed to get back to the car before it began to rain. On Sunday it was Girl Guides Thinking Day Celebration so our local Girl Guiding area held a procession. All the girls from the youngest Rainbows through to the older Rangers, Leaders and Trefoil Guild members attended. We carried all the unit flags through the town to the church. It was an impressive site as we snaked our way up through the streets despite the rain.
