Eye Karate Kamp, Southwold Harbour, Suffolk - 6th July 2024

Harry's karate club is doing its annual camp-out at the harbour campsite in Southwold, although he's broken an arm and so can't do karate at the moment. Despite that, Isobel and Harry head over on Thursday night to set up, whilst Fred and Nosher head over on Friday afternoon. Harry might as well have stayed at home as he spends most of his time on his tablet, although to be fair most of the Saturday is spent in the van/awning hiding out from some torrential rain. In-between the lashings, we do end up walking into Southwold and doing the arcades for a bit, before we bumb into the rest of the karate group at the Red Lion. The rest of the club heads off looking for somewhere to watch the football, but end up with us in the Harbour Inn, where we've stopped for tea and drinks. Before that on the Saturday morning, there's a rare chance to walk around Black Shore Quay at eight in the morning, where it's almost deserted, just before Isobel heads off to go and see Robbie Williams in that London.
