Holiday Mode

 We are still in holiday mode. We went to Brighton on Sunday. A shop window was full of old sewing machines. I couldn't decide if it looked retro in a good way or if it just looked like a strange graveyard for sewing machines. It was actually a clothing shop.
Brighton Pavilion is by far a more familiar landmark in Brighton.

 Today we visited the Contemporary Ceramics gallery and the British Museum.
Around the museum they had 'handling stations' where you could handle some of the museums collections. They had a piece of a reliquary. The photo below doesn't do it justice because it looked so fresh and vibrant. There is also a picture of a complete reliquary from one of their galleries.
Finally there is a very jolly medieval pot. I like the little face on the side.
