Had the afternoon off!

We had a rare treat today and had most of the day off the smallholding.  We had planned to go to the Snape Maltings Vintage fair at Snape in Suffolk.  We duly trekked down the A12, the grey/black clouds following us all the way, only to find once we got there that due to the heavy rain this morning the event had been cancelled - great!  So we plodded around for an hour or so and decided to haunt our old favourite destination - Southwold.

For any of you that don't know, Southwold is a wonderful seaside town, with a long pier and unique shops, with only one 'traditional' amusement arcade; there is another 'amusement' arcade, but this one is rather different - you have to experience it to know what I mean!

We had wonderful fish and chips at Marks fish and chip restaurant in the town, Michael washed his down with a pint of Adnams - what else, mine was with some Suffolk apple juice.  We strolled around the town, had my usual envious stare in the Amber jewellery shop window and a nose in the Joules shop then went down to the pier for coffee and a sticky cake.

The rain didn't quite manage to stay away, as you'll see from the photo's below.

The North Sea at its best, I think you'll find!

Back on the plot tomorrow, weather permitting!
