Bonfire Tour: Day One - Lewes, East Sussex

Stress-free train ride from Gatwick to Lewes after hellish Air Transat flight. Hubby had major claustrophobia attack as we sat in the plane for nearly and hour before take off. This cheapo charter airline could go into the sardine business.
Short nap and then out to explore the town. I've noticed many changes in shops & restaurants since I was last here in August of 2004. Stop at an ATM made me nostalgic for the years when we had to buy traveller's cheques prior to departure.
Snooping around some of my favourite book and charity shops in Lewes, and there are a great many of them. Stocked up on provisions at the new Waitrose supermarket that has replaced Morrison's/Safeway.
I'm on a quest for the best veggie sausages in captivity. Started by sampling Quorn's Sizzling Bangers which sold for £1.79 for 250 g. Very juicy and well seasoned - rating 8 out of 10.

Party at brother-in-law's last night for the Rocket Radio folk.
