A Southwold Anniversary, Southwold, Suffolk - 3rd July 2011

It's exactly one year since Nosher and Isobel got hitched. To celebrate, we return to Southwold - location of the "mini-moon" - for a night at The Crown, another Adnams hotel just a few metres away from The Swan, where we'd stayed the year before
