The Boy trundles about with sippy-cup after a bike ride to Eye
April Miscellany: Stupid Volcanic Ash, Suffolk - 18th April 2010
Isobel's out in San Diego for work and so Nosher's looking after The Boy for a week. This week soon turns in to two as stupid volcanic ash closes UK airspace and so Isobel is stranded for an extra 6 days. Nosher's Old Man comes over to help out, and we all end up getting one sort of lurgy or another - an entertaining fortnight
next album: April Miscellany 2: Norwich and some Ipswich Dereliction - 24th April 2010
previous album: Easter in Chagford, Devon - 3rd April 2010
This view (at Southwold) is somehow reminiscent of that footage of atom-bomb tests, or of 'Protect and Survive'
Granddad and The Boy mill around Southwold prom
The Old Man's head can just be seen through the railings
Fred hurls a load of sand and rocks about
A back-lit boy
As we drive down to Southwold harbour, Nosher spots Rob's (out of The BBs) E-Type 'Shaguar'
Wilma and Rob get back into the E-Type Jaguar
Granddad eats a sausage by the Mere
Fred does his best 'baby bird' impersonation as he steals most of Granddad's cake
Pausing on Brome Avenue to check that The Boy is still attached to the back of the bike
Over the road, a hot-air balloon goes up. Claire and Jessica have come over to scope it out too
The Boy Phil's pet cow does an early Amy Winehouse impersonation
Granddad and Phil and the remains of some of Dairy Farm's sheds
Dairy Farm seems strangeley reminiscent of Salton City, Calif.
Wavy wanders over to see what's up
The Old Chap roams about
Some of the remains of the Apollo space mission are lying around
Not quite the 'Thrandseton Tyre Fire'
Phil's cow sticks his head over the wall
Nosher's Old Man wanders back up the road
Over at the Stuston Farm Shop, Fred pokes a lamb
A very wooly pig
A throng of stripey piglets suck on the tit
