Last November, Alice had two weeks holiday after leaving her old job and before starting her new one and came to see us for five days. We loved having her with us for so long. She spent those few days sorting out some of her belongings as well as visiting an old friend and cycling to Rumburgh to look round the village where we used to live. We took her out for a meal one evening and on the one bright and dry day of the week we had lunch in Southwold and walked along the front.
The tide was in and the wind was very strong and cold.
We didn’t sit for too long as it really was extremely cold in the wind. We turned and made our way back to the car and instead of walking back along the front we crossed the road and walked through the town.
I will end this post by including a rather blurry photograph of a bird seen from our spare room window.
I last saw this bird just after Christmas. Friends of ours had two white pheasants visiting their garden. I am surprised the birds lasted as long as they did as they don’t exactly blend in with their surroundings, do they?
