Hi. I've caught up now from my holiday. So now I can tell you all about it.
The cottage with the green door is the one we stayed in - Stuckie Ben, Southwold. It was a lovely cosy cottage, with very steep stairs which can be a bit of a challenge when you have big feet. But we really liked it. It did have everything - all the mod cons needed.
Here's the view from the front door across to Walberswick - and it did flood there. Luckily we escaped the flooding and the only bit we had to avoid was the flooded A12.Here's the view from South Green down the hill to our cottage. As you can see we're right on the edge of the village.An iconic view of Southwold - Gun Hill with the lighthouse in the background. The lighthouse is open in the summer and the view from the top is fantastic on a clear day. It's a bit hairy getting up there but well worth the effort.
Crashing waves on the promenade. This was on the Sunday (I think) and the worst of the weather had passed by but it was still rather rough. The sandy it you can see if the promenade - and should be nothing but concrete, you can seen how it's virtually covered in sand now.
Here's a great gallery. Lots of fun items. The Serena Hall Gallery.
I can't praise this shop enough and the Heidi Pie was a real find. It's goats cheese, spinach and I think it was butternut squash. It was divine. I know I have a bit of a thing abouts Goats Cheese but even DH said it was great. Not too much pastry, nice and light and stuffed to the top with filling. Mmmmmmmm
