Today we drove to see Leeds castle, which is actually in Kent

fantastic big castle, walked through the castles looking at all the rooms and memorobilia,some of the rooms are still in use, i think people can hire it out for weddings and such, wandered around the grounds, took the road train

we stopped to watch the jousting which was good fun, they even got the kids in the audience into the ring to look at the weapons and pretend to be soldiers, they all seemed to be having a good time, then the red and blue soldiers did battle, got some nice photos before my camera battery ran out.  drank coffees and espressos as we watching from a great vangtage point

then walked over to the birds of prey show and the hedge maze, in which we got thoroughly lost, along with lots of other lost people, we finally had to ask directions from one of the staff standing in the middle of the maze up high so she could point the way out through the dark tunnels of the grotto, felt dizzy after all that, glad to be out, but it was fun to get lost. got the road train back to the carpark

back to the house for dinner and a rest-time to type some entries for my travel blog
