View of the beach huts from the end of the pier. We had a tasty lunch in one of the pier cafes-tasty but a very long time coming! Once we had finished, we wandered along the sea front into the town. I bought some local cheese to go with my cranberry jelly, and we enjoyed visiting a gallery and shop-though I could only afford some postcards. There were also a couple of interesting antique shops in which we had a very quick browse-the parking was running out fast!
Two of the dogs I saw.
The sea looks cold in this photo.
The sun was so bright it was doing strange things to my pictures. The glare and the little hexagons are not a special effect-that is how the photo came out.
A quiet backstreet-it reminded me of St Ives here.
I think we may go down here on holiday at some point as it is a lovely area, and has lots to visit, but is slightly too far for a day trip-it took three and a bit hours to get back-queueing on the motorway and near the Blackwall tunnel. I want to visit Aldeburgh and Sutton Hoo, and then on down to Norfolk which I love but have not visited for years. We were only twenty miles from Lowestoft yesterday so nearly there!
Today has been much more boring-but quite productive. I have sorted my filing, typed some lists for a new group activity after half term, and started my term one reports-a couple of photos and a description of how the child has settled and some information about how they are getting on so far.
