Multi-coloured bins on the seafront
A Few Hours in Southwold, Suffolk Coast - 27th December 2011
Southwold is one of our favourite places, so it's only fitting that we make a post-Christmas visit for a couple of hours to see and hear the sea, and have a snack in an on-pier café. Fred's also very keen to poke around on the sand - and at one point even makes the suggestion that he takes off all his clothes and goes for a swim. On the way back, there's a very brief stop at Walpole to finally (after several years) get a photo of the old Post Office, which still has a few old "Lyons Teas" banners in the window.

Southwold pier. Fred watches a game of catch
Isobel waves a mitten
Knotted orange rope
Paint from a yellow line crumbles away
