Chinese New Year 2002 (Horse)

Feature image

Gallery published by Richard Goodwin

The Confucius Chinese Restaurant in Chichester became something of a second home, where we'd meet up after work to chat and drink and eat and then drink some more.    The Chinese New Year celebrations were a good excuse to do that some more, but all night.

Squirrels

The first batch were taken in Priory Park, Chichester on Saturday 10th November. I went to the park for somewhere to eat my Saturday morning sausage sandwich treat; usually I sit outside the Cathedral but I fancied a change. As the weather was fine (but cold) I pulled the camera out to take pictures of the Priory and along comes this squirrel...

Looking at the time stamps of the images while they were still on the camera these images were taken over the course of 8 minutes; the squirrel was still hanging around the same spot when I left.

Not quite sure of the exact date, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't on or around the 5th November as they (Aurora Fireworks?) used up left-over fireworks to put on a charity display.

The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum is a sort of building-museum.  Old buildings get dismantled from where they might have been demolished or neglected and rebuilt here.

This is where it all started - my first chilli plant (a small twilight) was bought here! Currently (2007) I have 9 plants on the windowsill, five of which overwintered from last year; and seeds for 8 new varieties for next year, when I hope to have a greenhouse...

Pagham Harbour, August 2001

Pagham Harbour's just north of Selsey Bill, or about 7km from Chichester as the crow flies.

The first time I went there I walked the scenic route, walking down the canal and then deciding to just keep going until I got to the sea.  Needless to say, this time we went a more conventional way, on a bus!
