August 8

My daughter, Nicole, arrived, and we are exploring  Chichester, and surroundings.

Yesterday was a field trip to Arundel, which is the home of the Duke of Norfolk. Arundel Castle has long history, and changed sides twice during the civil war. Today, it is open (partly) to the public, but is still used as a private residence by the Duke and his family. I would LOVE to have been a kid here: the places to explore!

    Arundel Castle sounds familiar, but I can’t remember where I heard it. Maybe a book?
