On Wednesday we took a trip over the Downs to a nice little garden centre and farm shop. We love to visit this centre, its not large just small and friendly but they also have a small menagerie of animals, and where there's a few donkeys etc I'm always interested.
The first thing you see as you drive in are these beautiful small chickens and cockerels, such a variation of colours they were really gorgeous.
Several goats, very friendly, who came up for a scratch.
Some haughty looking Alpaca's, (at least I thing that's what they are)
One dear little pony.
As you can see, the ground is water logged and they were more wading that walking poor things.
A parade of geese, not sure where they were off to.
And to end, more rain.....
This was taken on the way home. The rain is never far away at the moment and when it arrives it arrives in style, lashing down.
This was taken on the seafront through the windscreen of the car, you can see the remains of the West Pier in the distance that was burnt down in 2003 and remains in a skeleton state. Actually I like it and the birds love it as a roosting place.
