Good morning, everyone. Here we are at my last day in lovely Southwold. It's been a lovely holiday but I am a home-body and am looking forward to getting back and sleeping in my own bed for a few days.
The walk down to the harbour yesterday morning was very pleasant. I walked back using the road and took some photos along the way.
The afternoon tour of St Edmund's Church really was very good with plenty of information about it all. I used my phone to take photos and a video clip but can't work out how to get them off my phone onto the laptop so I'll have to do it at home and might make it a separate post to the daily ones.
Thank you for the encouraging comments about my stitching efforts. I wonder if a video of the photos with titles and background music might work - I'm not confident enough to do voice overs yet!!
Anyway, it was a long tour - over an hour - and I forgot to stop off at the amber shop to see the museum so I'll fit that in today once I've packed. It's only just around the corner.
What I did remember is to stop off at the butchers for a load of their own cured bacon which I will freeze in portions when I get home. It's very tasty bacon with no nasty white bits coming out when you fry it.
The evening fish and chips were delicious and I was so very sleepy afterwards that I gave in and was in bed and fast asleep soon after eight. I slept until five, as usual, so that was good.
Today is a bit muddled. I was going to visit a windmill (I have booked), then come back, load up the car and leave but, as Val pointed out, I am part way home so why not just go straight on. So that's what I am going to do. I will pack and load the car, pop round the corner to the amber museum, come back, have a late breakfast/early lunch, wipe over everything and then visit the windmill before carrying on home. I might - will - encounter more traffic than leaving later but that's OK. I've looked up the route and it's very straightforward, both getting to the mill and then on from there.
See you again tomorrow, back home again. Have a really good day, everyone. xx
