Southwold By Satnav, Suffolk - 28th December 2008

Isobel gets given a SatNav for Christas, so we decide to test it out by doing a very familiar trip - to the coast at Southwold - for a very bracing walk in the strong easterly (Siberian) winds. Fred's OK in his furry hat, Maggie-Simpson-esque snow suit and several blankets - so much so he barely notices whilst we freeze on the sea-front.
