A lovely day out in Rye, East Sussex.

Visiting Rye seems to be becoming an annual event!  I went with a friend last year and this month I took a friend visiting from Australia.  Yet again, we had the very best of days.  Enjoy the photo which will, hopefully, remind you of this beautiful little town or inspire you to add it to your "to do" list!

I am looking very pleased with my Rye purchase: a plant container for home!

And now for the pretties & the ancient............

And this is the post from last year........same time, same place, different houses and some fashion!

Cobbled streets, ancient buildings & great little shops, it's a town steeped in history with something interesting round every corner.  On one of the hottest days of the years we had a very long lunch & walked in the shade the entire time! 

Rye Castle, otherwise known as Ypres Tower & a couple of typical local buildings.  This was a great opportunity to try out my new Olympus PEN, as well as using my i-phone. Am very pleased with the latter, although the settings are a 'mare to work out in sunlight! But it's depth of field (bokeh) is awesome on the flower shots.

There were some interesting doors in Rye, ancient & not so ancient.........

And, of course, the day would not have been complete without an impromptu fashion shoot with the PEN! My bezza Dalia is a natural: both as a photographer & as a model. Not bad for ladies over 60 are we, and I got to wear my favourite Hoss Intropia summer dress in the UK, in August.....most unusual!

Dalia's dress is from Hobbs, her sunglasses by Vera Wang, her handbag from TK Max, & her sandals are from Kurt Geiger

My vintage sunglasses are from Fabulous Fanny's in NYC, bag from Elif Kose in Rottingdean, & sandals by FitFlop.

A great day out and if you've never visited Rye, make sure it's on your 'must visit' list.  You'll love it. I found some great buttons & bows, for photography, in the local market so went home a very happy bunny, letting the train take the strain!
