...the weekend we went to Southwold on our annual knitting on the beach trip. Caron brought loads of her famous home made sausage rolls, and we started tucking in on the journey.
And what a journey. We left Walkern at 9am and reached Southwold at 6pm. A mere 107 miles, however we followed the scenic route, meandering through the countryside. We stopped in Clare, then Long Melford, continuing to Peasenhall and Yoxford on a fantastic junk trail. Linda picked up a piano, Dany found a chair and a chandelier, Caron bought some pretty votives and Karen found a watercolour of a camel by Chester Williams(?).
Still en route, we had a giant cream tea (and chocolate and beetroot cake) in the garden of The Parish Lantern Tea Rooms, Walberswick.
Found Hellie and Donna on the way.
We stayed at The Swan Hotel, Southwold.
In the newly built chalet syle rooms, which overlook the secret garden. Very Hi di Hi!
And spent a wonderful soiree in the garden, around the piano, with Caron's votives coming into their own.
Sunday was a great day on the beach. Please note Linda tucking in to cheese balls. Sorry, how many did you say you could fit in your mouth once?
Trish remembered her knitting. That was the reason we came wasn't it?
Donna and Beryl managed a few rows too.
Dany and Hellie and a lorra lorra lolly.
The three Sues, Diane and Paula, all looking very glamorous, down at the Southwold Boating Lake Tea Room - with a superb cream tea and fresh strawberries.
Aah, back home again on Monday, after a spot of shopping in Woodbridge and supper in The George at Cavendish. One slight moment - Linda realised she didn't have the fuel key to the Jeep. A very kind gentleman came to the rescue with his Henderson garage door key which did the trick. Phew!
