The one in which it appears I'm a surreptitious twitcher.....

I've recovered now from my eventful weekend of visiting my Aunt and Uncle who live near Sudbury! Sophie and I left on Friday evening, negotiated the nightmare of the M6 and deposited ourselves on the poor unsuspecting people known as Margaret and Adrian. We fell into bed soon after we got there (and Sophers had found the stairs..... ahem) looking forward to the trip to Southwold the next day. Off we went (even more grateful as Adrian sacrificed the Rugby - above and beyond I think!!!) and what a day we had. Fab, and much anticipated fish and chips on the pier, a look at the Waterclock and the "under the pier show" (more on that on my next post) and then off for an explore!

There are some amazing beach huts all along the front, without a doubt my favourite was one called "Gin 'N' it"!!!!

Are they cute or what????! I can imagine spending many happy days summer and winter in a beach hut - I'd love one!!! (are you hearing me Father Christmas????!!)

We walked along the beach watching the people fishing and out in their boats

We then carried on up to where the sea meets the River Blyth, which is where I started with the Birdie pictures!!!!!


I'm aware that I've posted a few bird ones recently..... I must have a touch of Bill Oddie-itis (frightening isn't it!)

Well as you can see we had a great time - AND that was only the first part of the weekend.... tune in tomorrow to see what else we got up to...

Most important of all - Thanks to Margaret and Adrian for having us, and showing us some lovely places we've never been before, we had a great time!

So that's what you've been up to eh? How nice! I love those beach huts, they look so friendly all in a line like that. All you'd need would be a flask of something warming, a blanket and a deck chair - ahhh lovely.

'Under the pier show' - the mind boggles Sarah - does your mother know what you get up to?

xxxxxxxx tee hee

Sounds like a fab weekend, aren't Aunties and Uncles great! I'm off to visit my Aunty Barbara next week in Lincolnshire, I'm sure she'll show me the local sights too. We're not far from the coast either so I'm hoping we might get to see some beach huts ourselves.

If you get a beach hut Sarah I will help you decorate it in candy stripes with an old battered table and chairs and some French enamel oh and so much more!!!!

The beach huts are beautiful, I can't wait until we build ours! so excited.

I think that bird watching is quite cute. I love your bird photos.

Now that the postal strike is over, I can send your candle! yippee, I hope you like it.
