September 2019: Southwold with Ros, Adrian, Linda &
We were lucky enough to
spend another week in one of our favourite places. We
invited Ros, Adrian, Linda & Derek to join us. The
weather was a bit cloudy and rainy at times, but it didn't
prevent us from having a really good week.
Our one-carriage train
at Halesworth station and an unexpected first visit into
the town itself. We should have checked that there were
actually buses running from there to Southwold and not
assumed so, based on last year. In fact, they do, but
at a much reduced rate, so we'll take a taxi for the nine
mile trip in future.
When we finally got
to Southwold, an ice-cream was needed!
We had the first
night to ourselves before our guests arrived.
Second night - pre-dinner
drinks before dining at The Crown.
Extra high tide -
we'd never seen the sea so rough. The surfers appeared to be enjoying
Ros brought us a
challenging 3D jigsaw. It was fun.
The path to Walberswick.
This roof was being
worked on last year. The result is excellent.
Geoff was delighted
to see quetsch (a type of plum)
for sale in the market - £5 for the tray.
Site of the old hospital,
now being redeveloped into a community centre, which we support.
Another walk to Walberswick...
...but the first
time we have visited the church there.
Our last evening
- dinner in the Tap Room at the Swan Hotel.
