On the first day I decided to take a train journey from Tenterden to Bodiam and return, on the Kent and East Sussex Railway, a heritage steam train.
|The engine would be pushing us there|
|Tenterden station taken from the train|
|Crossing the River Rother|
|Traffic waiting at the level crossing|
|Taking on water - it's only a little train!|
|A replica coffin|
We steamed out of Bodiam on the return journey with the engine now at the front -
past Bodiam Castle -
and back to Tenterden.
I then drove to Great Dixter to see the house and gardens again. I visited two years ago but hadn't been inside the house so this was my opportunity.
|The medieval part of the house built in the 1400's|
|Flowers by the front door|
So ended my first day.
Plenty more to do during the weekend so watch out for Part 2!
