Southwold By The Sea, Suffolk - 29th September 2013

It's the day after Fred's birthday part at the village hall. We take the remaining aunties - Evelyn, Louise and Sis - over to Southwold for a few hours on the beach. It's a warm but windy day, and the seas are churning up a good head of foam in the brisk north-easterly. All of which calls for a spot of fish'n'chips from the pier café accompanied by a bit of random barbershop singing, courtesy of some North London school. Clearly having a bit of a sing is something to do whilst their bus driver figures out why he's ended up at Southwold instead of Sheppey.
