Elaine and Mark have joined us for the weekend in Suffolk, and today we drove along the coast to Aldeburgh.
It had everything that you expect in an English seaside town:-
Bracing wind coming strongly off the sea
Extra loud enormous seagulls circling ominously overhead
Overpriced ice-cream shops
Fantastic fish and chip smells wafting everywhere
Cute little shops selling seasidy themed art and nick nacks
We took a little walk along the estuary but cut it short as the allure of the chip shop was very strong. It took us a while to get to the front of the world's longest queue, but once inside the prices were very reasonable. Eventually we emerged clutching our hot bags of salt and vinegared loveliness.
Bravely we sat on the seafront to eat our feast and then, full and happy, we headed back home.
