Hello dear readers! How are you?
Sorry for such a long gap between entries. I have returned home to England for the summer and I have been busy enjoying myself!
I still have lots of Tokyo posts to catch up on, but in today’s entry I’ll show you photos from a day in Fishbourne, near Chichester.
As I have mentioned before, I am friends with a certain Jack who has marvellous Adventures in Museum Land! Last wekend he wanted to visit Fishbourne Roman Palace. I had been there before on a school trip, but I thought it would be nice to refresh my memory and so I tagged along.
Here is my outfit:
Plimsolls, socks: Offbrand
Since we were going into the country I thought it would be wise to wear plimsolls, and I put together a 50s inspired coordinate to match them. I looped up my hair to make a poofy ponytail and tied it with a pale green ribbon.
It’s simple to do and cute and practical for summer! I will make a tutorial soon.
I won’t tell you too much about the museum as you’ll be much better off reading my friend’s excellent article! However I’ll share a couple of photos of the most famous and well preserved mosaic there:
Cupid riding a dolphin
The mosaic also included an exciting sea-panther but my photo didn’t come out well 😦
Although it’s not my favourite period in history I always feel a sort of jolly familiarity when I visit Roman sites. Latin was probably my best subject at school and I kept on with it right until I left sixth form. Unfortunately I don’t remember all that much of it now!
Outside, a reenactment with ‘Roman’ soldiers was being staged. It went on a bit but there was a thrilling part where they all rushed at the audience and several children ran away screaming! A the end there was a demonstration of the onager and that was pretty good too.
After we had exhausted the museum we had a picnic and then went for a stroll. We met two very friendly horses!
Lovely horsey! I wanted to take them home with me.
Since I’m in England for a while, I am going to try to write more about my own country. There are a lot of wonderful things here and I want to share them with you! I hope you enjoyed todays post.
Thank you for reading and see you next time,
