Saturday.


Azalea - absolutely thriving. It's the one that Rog and Cath gave Ann a week or two ago. Thanks both of you. It still looks stunning.


Our senior daughter, Sarah, her husband, and youngsters are spending a few days in Southwold. They had invited  us to have lunch with them. So this morning we drove up to Southwold, via Yoxford, where we stopped to do a little antique hunting. Some lovely autumn colouring still showing along the A12. Took the above photo through the windscreen running North down into Blythburgh.


Had lunch in Coasters, which specialises in sea food. Got our waitress (a very pretty and helpful girl) to take the above photo just after she'd taken our orders. Usual very good lunch there, after which we did a little relaxed pottering round the shops. It's still a lovely little town, Southwold, and not quite so crowded in late November as it is in summer. Finally left at about a quarter to five, and got home a little after six. Been a very nice day out.   Got a fairly busy day tomorrow, so must try and get a reasonably early night now, after a quick game of scrabble. Last night's game was a draw (341 points each).

                                       Good night All.

Did you here Lucy on the radio Friday evening asking for a request for Sarah's birthday?

Crowbard said...

That sounds like a high scoring game!

Hope it's not going to turn into a Triffid!
Southwold off season is the time to go!

We seem to be the only people who didn't hear it, Mag. Even our nice young waitress asked Sarah if she was the lady who had been on the wireless the evening before having her ?th birthday. (only the waitress called it the radio of course).

It was Rog. If only I could do sums I could tell you the exact score we scored between us. But, it was pretty good.

Mike and Ann said...

Sorry Rog. That one was in reply to Crowbard who knows I don't do summs.

Mike and Ann said...

I think you may have a point there Rog. A decent November does have its advantages for visiting a popular seaside town.

We had some lovely family hols in Southwold

Hello Pat. Yes, me too. My mother and I used to stay there in the 1940s, whilst my father was away fighting the war. We stayed with a great aunt who ran a small hotel there (her description of it was 'a small but select hotel' and at this point my grandmother, her sister, would interject, sotto voce, 'it's probably a boarding house'). They're all long gone now, of course, but Southwold doesn't change, I'm glad to say. You'd recognise it without any problem.
