The whole family meet up for a week in Southwold. We have done this for five years running but this will be the last time at Bittern House as Amorelle is selling. Her asking price is £575,000.
On the way up we stop for lunch, as usual, at the Sun Inn in Dedham – opposite one of the many churches Constable painted. The chef is Italian and I have the fabulous Italian ox liver.

Other pub lunches we enjoy are at The Anchor, in Walberswick, where Danae and Nathan had their post-wedding lunch, The Plough and Sail, in Snape Maltings, where I had a delicious Cromer crab salad and pavlova, and the King’s Head in Orford, which is a lovely family pub and does a tasty sausages and mash as well as a wonderful fish and chips.

Below is the view from our bedroom window in Bittern House.

Some of the things we did in Southwold:
* went on the beach
* ate fish and chips
* drank beer at The Sole Bay
* went to see the circus
* went on the ferry to Walberswick
* saw Rumpelstiltskin at the Jean Freud theatre
* saw the castle at Orford

Mostly the weather was warm and sunny but windy and it rained a bit.
