Thursday.

Today was absolutely lovely weather wise, so we (that is Ann, meself and  granddaughter Beth) decided to  go to  Felixstowe and have a look at the North   Sea. Pausing only to  book  a table at the Orwell Hotel for three, at one pip  emma, we drove down the A14 (mostly ) to Felixstowe, and to the Orwell, where we partook of  a light (but very satisfying) luncheon. After lunch we drove to the seafront, strolled along the sands for about fifteen minutes,  then found a vacant seat and
 watched  the world go by - very restful.

I tried to take photographs for the delectation of my readers, but found the camera being totally  non cooperative. Handed the camera to granddaughter Beth, who found the  problem- I'd forgotten to replace the memory card after doing yesterday's blog. I must admit to being  not altogether high tech. However Beth, who is altogether Hi-tec, took these photos on her camera, then  when we got home, transferred them  to my blog.  By magic, I  suppose!  Being called upstairs for supper.  Goodnight All.

P.s. Reopen this to say that although the temperature  in the  garden was really uncomfortably high,this morning ; by the time  we got to the beach,  the temperature, although warm,  was not uncomfortably  so. It was much warmer a few miles  inland than at the seaside.

It's too hot to be outside at present, but I'm sure the sea breeze helped. I bought Tim a new camera and he's always meaning to take wonderful photos - but usually leaves it at home!

Hello Z. Tell Tim that the last thing I always put in the car is my camera - the glove compartment. It's just that I'm still a bit shaky on things like the memory card. Wouldn't it be good if someone could invent a memory card for elderly gentlemen?

Stick with the technologies you excel at Mike, forget the camera but take some engraving kit and pop out a quick pic with your burrin....

I nearly went to Felixstowe myself last Thursday and then decided it was too hot, so hid up indoors all day.

Glad to see you getting out and about and hope that Anne is enjoying better eyesight following her op. My Mum had her cataracts removed last year and is delighted with the results.
