So this is the last Life in Wellington this time.   Next week we shall be back in the sunshine – I can’t wait.

We have had an interesting week.  On Wednesday we went off to Portsmouth to visit the new site of the Mary Rose – very impressive and well worth a visit.

On Thursday we continued our National Trust tour by a trip to Stourhead in Wiltshire;  a site I last visited thirty years ago..   There are beautiful gardens there where the rhododendrons are coming into flower.

I have read in the past about the great earthquake which decimated Fethiye so I was interested to read that it is 60 years since this event occurred.  (CLICK HERE).   I found this article very interesting.

My fame is spreading!!   Apparently there is a new shop now in Gocek called……Val’s Boutique!!     I can’t wait to visit and see if I (and my friends) can get ginormous discounts.

So next week I can discard my fleeces, socks and thermal vests and get back to a decent temperature.  Hooray!!
