After breakfast this morning we packed up lunch and headed straight to the coast. The problem with where we live is that we have two counties of wonderful coastline to choose from. We opted for Southwold in the end.
Several reasons. Great promenading for one.
A wonderful pier where you can cosy up to drink very chocolaty hot choc after having lost all of your 2p's in the slot machines for another.
Knowing we've been here again and again and always feel like it's the first time. The Bun's alway want to end the walk by playing It at the Guns on the Hill. On the way past I went into the Sailors Reading Room for the first time.
It's a fascinating room with a real air of calmness about it. Originally built to keep the sailors and fishermen out of the pub, it now serves as a small museum to remember many of them. You can still go there to quietly read, but I think I'd prefer to knit and listen to the sea.
A small moment of peace before we raced off up the hill to chase around the Guns before heading off home again.
