I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I love Bodiam. One of the places that I often visited when I lived in London, along with Leeds Castle, and Hever Castle. Good ducks too!
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. I’ll do a post on Bodiam soon. Never been to the others though I’d like to visit Hever, not sure about Leeds Castle – it is expensive.

    1. It was so funny to see them waddling over the bridge instead of taking to the water. Glad you enjoyed the pics!

  2. Gosh, Jude – that’s about the most endearing series of pic.s I’ve seen in a day’s march !!! I am a passionate fan of duckywuckies at the best of times; and this lot just about take the cake.
    AND a castle, as well !!!!

  3. Ahh…Bodhiam Castle, a place I know well! And as for these ducklings, they are gorgeous!! I want them…did you bring them home with you?? 😉

    1. Can’t think why we’ve never stopped at Bodiam before, but it was a lovely day out on the steam train. I would have loved to have brought them home, but I suspect their mother and aunties might have had something to say about it 😉
