Back from holiday

We had a lovely bank holiday break in Suffolk. We stayed in a really nice caravan park called Carlton Meres, very tranquil and pretty with a lovely fishing lake. The park was well situated about 7 miles from the seaside. My favourite place we visited was Southwold which has the most fantastic pier. You can see it in the picture here. All the shops on it were really tasteful and the cafe was just fabulous we had hot chocolate with marshmallows and a delicious chocolate peanut cake (well it was a British Summer's day so hot chocolate not so outlandish!)

Here is a picture of the kids and my husband sitting on the beach with the pier in the background.
The kids had a good time, the park has a small club house with a snooker table and gym so they had plenty to keep them busy.

We visited Framlingham Castle which was nearby and located in another gorgeous village of the same name.
There was a farmer's market in the village square so we bought some fresh fruit and crusty bread. It was all very English and civilised.

Finally a day out at Pleasure Wood Hills, the local theme park, small but with a couple of good rides.

We will definitely be visiting this part of the world again as only about 2 hours drive from home and such a pretty county.

Thanks for letting me ramble on, I will be back tomorrow with another card as I did smuggle some card making basics away and managed to finish one card!
