I got back to Stevenage today. I still get an extra day off on Monday because it's bank holiday.

I have been a bit more active than I sometimes am when on holiday, hence the lack of posts.

On Wednesday, I visited Tunbridge Wells, a very posh town in Kent. With this theme, I sat outside a fairly plush bar and drank a Peroni lager, and then ordered a brunch of hot sausage sandwich with red onion relish.

While in Tunbridge Wells, I visited the parish church of King Charles the Maryr. I had visited this church about four years ago and I fancied a second visit. The church was built in the 17th century and dedicated to King Charles I, who is regarded by many Anglicans as a saint. There is a very beautiful stained glass window above the altar, depicting the angel of the resurrection. There is also a copy of a very gory 17th century drawing of King Charles' execution, with blood spurting from the poor king's headless body.

The next day, I went my mother and grandmother to Eastbourne, an old fashioned seaside town. Its pier had recently been damaged by fire, just as the one in Hastings had. Sadly, one of the workmen repairing it was accidently killed this week.

A colleague had asked me to buy him a stick of rock. Easbourne was the perfect place to buy this. I don't know if they have rock in America, it's a hard candy made into sticks which is generally sold at seaside towns. I think it's a quite disgusting stuff.

That evening, I went with my parents to a country pub for a meal. Some friends of my parents came along.

I drank a beer that I had not tried before, Old Dairy Blue Top, a pale ale. It was quite nice. I had bought a bottled stout from the same brewery earlier in the week, but had not tried that yet.

For starters we all had whitebait. It was not the best whitebait I have eaten and they did not give us any lemon with it. I was also surprised that the bread served with it was a slice of white toast.

For the main course, I had trouble deciding on whether to have pan-fried sea bream in a basil and lemon dressing or calves liver in port jus with serrano ham. I tossed a coin and it came out as tails for the sea bream. My father ordered the same. However, the choice was taken out of my hands when the waiter annouced that they only had one sea bream. I quickly asked for  the calves liver. This turned out to be quite delicious, though when it was initially served, they had forgotten to put the serrano ham on the plate.

It was a lovely holiday, but it's still nice to be back.
