We've just got back from a lovely week in Suffolk. The weather was mostly kind, and we got out and about every day.
There was an interesting castle at Framlingham -
- with Tudor chimneys purely to impress the neighbours. Inside the walls the buildings were very un-castle-like -
I actually managed to overcome my fear of height combined with open space, and walked all the way round the top of the walls.
A visit to Southwold is always required. This is the pier -
- and it's compulsory to photograph the beach huts -
We went a couple of times to the RSPB reserve at Minsmere, though all the birds avoided my lens. The power station at Sizewell couldn't escape, though.
And on Dunwich Heath I was very lucky to switch the camera onto full zoom and snap this deer before it melted away as its 2 companions had just done -
We visited the Natural Dye Studio, and I was very restrained in my purchases. There may be socks....
We had lots of good walks in wonderful countryside; we browsed round fine old towns, and lunched in pubs mostly called the King's Head.
Amazingly, although we ate every bun, cake, shortbread, and loaf that we could, the scales tell me I've put on precisely 1 pound in the week.
