Pallant Delight

A day jolly by train to Chichester with friends Ferney and Demus was just what the Doctor ordered. Just the ticket to keep ones pecker up during these dark days. A visit to the delightful Pallant House Gallery was the order of the day and this gallery is fast becoming a favourite. It is such a warm and welcoming building. The collection of British Modern art is second to none. 

As ever our day does involve a spot of lunch, afternoon tea and general over indulgence. I couldn't resist taking a picture of my lunch at the ever reliable Cathedral Cloisters Cafe - superb stuff or as Demus put it "trencherman tucker" - steak pie if you are interested and trimmings galore.

The main purpose of our visit was to see two exhibitions. Demus and Ferney were excited by the David Jones exhibition (which was excellent), but for me it was the Evelyn Dunbar exhibition as I have long been an admirer of her work. This focused on her lost works which have recently been found - both did not disappoint and you will need to get your skates on if you wish to visit - they are both on for another week or two. 

The day was rounded off in front of a gentle fire in the St Martins tea rooms, which again is becoming a firm favourite. Another slice of cake?
