Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me?














Southwold is gorgeous!  I've completely fallen in love with the place.  Don't tell me it isn't always bathed in glorious sunshine because I simply won't believe you!

If you've never been, do please try and go.  I promise you'll love it too.  It feels like a small English seaside town trapped in time.  No nasty, noisy amusement arcades, fun fairs or kiss me quick hats; just charming pastel cottages smothered in fragrant climbing roses, a beautifully clean beach, and of course, those iconic beach huts stretching as far as the eye can see.  (I saw one for sale in an estate agents' window for £40,000!  Hmmmm, I think we had better start saving.)

We pottered around nearby Aldeburgh too which is just as lovely.

Thank you so much for your kind anniversary wishes.  We had the most wonderful weekend and, yes, I've definitely decided to sign up for another 21 years with that man of mine! ;-)

  3. We are lucky enough to live close enough to Aldeburgh and Southwold that we often pop there at the weekend or to eat out. It's interesting to see what we take for granted through someone else's eyes. So pleased that you had a lovely time. X

  9. Oh Heather you've taken me right back to when we visited in holiday several years ago. I remember buying sardines from one of those huts and sitting by the boating lake (that might have been Aldeburgh?) Looks like you had the sort of weather to see it in all it's glory as well - lovely pictures x Jane

  11. Your photos are lovely Heather, and capture all that's best about Southwold.
    When we visited we also went to Walberswick, a small but pretty place where everybody of all ages was crabbing! Its a great area for a holiday, and I'm glad you enjoyed your special weekend.

  12. I'm with Gilly, Walberswick is my favourite, and Dunwich ... all that lovely empty pebble beach! Southwold in summer is delightful but just too busy for us. We have friends who live in a village near Framlingham who we stay with and who are forever trying to persuade us to move to be near them. And were it possible, we would, like a shot. I think you can easily lose your heart to Suffolk.

  18. I had to stop and comment on your pictures. They are really fantastic. I've just recently gotten a "good" camera and have been learning and learning how to use it. I really enjoyed your post. And congrats on 21 years!

  19. Sounds and looks utterly idyllic. I've still never been to Norfolk or Suffolk and now I have yet another reason why I really want to go there. Next time I get the chance, that's going top of my list!
