The 'Minimoon' and a trip round Adnams Brewery, Southwold, Suffolk - 7th July 2010

Jemma - one of "The Mommies" - amazingly offers to look after The Boy for three nights, and so Nosher and Isobel drop Fred off and head over to Southwold in the MX-5, with the roof down. We stay at The Swan Hotel in the middle of town, and spend a very pleasant couple of days having a "mini-honeymoon" (or a minimoon) just hanging around, visiting the beach and the pubs and even getting a trip around the Adnams Brewery - a kind of beer shrine.
