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.

Knotted orange rope

Paint from a yellow line crumbles away

The café we were in gets an extension

Isobel and Fred lob stones in to the sea

Fred stares at the waves

Isobel takes some video on her 'C90 cassette'

A very pink spade handle is discarded on the beach
