Ha ha! The Grand Burstin.... stayed there many a time when I used to work around Sussex / Kent area. Your comments about the age of the residents (about 97, ISTR) brought the memories flooding back!

Loving the arty photo's fella and your efforts to get fed steak salad made me smile.... been there done that a few times myself.

looking forward to reading about the rest of your journey. Stay safe!
