Afternoon in Guildford

The Angel Hotel Yard

The Angel Hotel Yard

What a difference a couple of days can make.

Tuesday evening I was in Guildford, it was like winter. Today was a hot summer’s day. Winter to summer in a couple of days.

I had intended lunch at the Guildford Institute, as usually very good on a Friday, but as I looked in the YMCA for a friend, I ate there instead.

I did later look in the Guildford Institute, the lady who usually does Friday lunch was not there. It was a very unappetising spread. I am glad I did not eat there.

I ought to have had lunch at the Thai restaurant in Jeffries Passage, where I had jasmine tea with the owner.

I picked up Lewis Carroll card from the museum. They used to have on sale a wonderful Lewis Carroll Alice in Wonderland, but sadly no longer.

As it was a lovely day, I thought I would sit in the Castle grounds and read a book. In Waterstone’s Godalming, a display of books including by Paul Coelho (must be a first for Waterstone’s). A book that caught my eye was about a boy who came back from heaven. It made me think of The Shack.

The Shack is an interesting book, well worth reading. I could not find the book I was looking for (though when I inquired they said they had). But what I did find was The Shack Revisited, which I took to the Castle grounds to read.
