Last weekend, my primary human and I travelled to Eastbourne for our fifth reading retreat. The house we stayed in was pretty fancy:

We moved around quite a bit over the weekend, reading in bed and in the smaller reading room, but this was our preferred spot:

Other readers took up position in the large conservatory at the back of the house, where there was also a jigsaw to try when taking a break:

The view of the marina was very pleasant:

We did venture out for a walk on the Saturday afternoon. The random public art at the housing estate roundabout demonstrated a not unexpected nautical theme:

There was a pleasant walk among the rocks to view the Martello Tower:

And there was, of course, also the sea!

Some of the rocks were interestingly marked:

And the architecture of the waterworks was almost Escher-esque:

But mostly we read and read and ate and read and ate and read some more. My human was particularly pleased with the fingerless gloves in this occasion's goody bag:

Not long to wait until the next retreat in March - and we're already booked for one in November too!
