When we got home, we had sand in the hair,In the eyes and the ears and everywhere;Whenever a good nor'wester blows,Christopher is found withSand-between-the-toes.
Good morning. Do you remember this AA Milne poem from your childhood. I was reminded of it yesterday; there was no nor'wester blowing but I seemed to bring quite a bit of the Southwold beach home with me, all the same!
We had better weather here yesterday. None of the predicted storms and only the edge of one shower that lasted five minutes and didn't ever require an umbrella although you could see the rain falling out at sea.
It was a day at home - well, at the cottage - and I spent it walking here, there and everywhere (OK, slight exaggeration). I set off towards the harbour, joined the beach via the sand dunes, pebble and sand walked north to the pier which is harder work than you might think, meandered along the pier, treating myself to some nice Norfolk lavender soap in the shop at the end, then back along the promenade and home for a light lunch. Then I went up the high street to the Adnams shop (yes, I did buy a few things) and round and back.
Then, late afternoon/early evening, I drove up the Kessingland to the SE group here and it was lovely. Nice to be socialising with others. Holidays on my own are great but . . .
Of course, I have a few clips.
You can see how threatening the sky looked and the rain over the sea.
I spent some considerable time just standing and watching the waves - they are both relaxing and invigorating at the same time. I love waves . . .
Today is a day out. I'm off to Sutton Hoo to meet with my friend Val, something I am really looking forward to very much indeed.
Then, in the evening, assuming I can stay away long enough, it is Sewing Bee. If I can't, it will have recorded at home or there's always iPlayer.
I'm really having a lovely time. I dearly love Southwold and the pattern of one day out, one day local is working so well.
Have a lovely day too, everyone. What are your plans? xx
