After a much needed lazier start to the day, we made the most of the fabulous late summer heatwave and headed off to the coast. Now I have an automatic car again Mr Bun could drive us at last (he has a dodgy kneecap that slips out - yuk - if he has to use a clutch). Mr Bun driving meant time for me to hook away and have a proper look at stuff on the way.
Such a relaxing and blissful journey made all the better when we parked right in front of this.
Aldeburgh is a favourite spot of ours and we couldn't think of a better place to visit on such a blue skied day. It's not easy to choose mind you as we have such varied and fabulous beaches to choose from in Norfolk and Suffolk.
Once we'd had our picnic my three lovelies went to paddle and skim stones. I'd promised to join them after a while, but I instantly fell asleep lulled by the sound of waves on shingle and a warm breeze on my face.
It was a mighty fine outdoor nap. Once I'd been jumped on and woken up we headed off down the prom, prom, prom towards the boating lake and the town. We love strolling along looking at all the different buildings and window shopping in the town. When we got there though, we changed our minds as there were far too many people about to make it peaceful.
On to plan 2 a bit earlier instead. We headed off to the local posh hotel for afternoon tea on the terrace with a sea view. Fresh coffee, tea and scones to remind us that there's nothing more heavenly than a blue sky day in England.
There were so many things that made us roar with laughter today. Probably not PC enough to put on here as I'd hate to offend anyone. It was so good to relax and have a great day just the four of us not having to be anywhere or do anything we didn't want to do.
A good set up for the week ahead methinks.
