This week I've been to Aldeburgh in Suffolk for a short holiday with my Mum before I head back to University next week!! September in Suffolk is always so beautiful, the beaches are quiet, the sun is still shinning (most of the time) and the sea is still slightly warm. We spent three nights away, eating, drinking and enjoy the last of the summer sun before the Autumnal weather kicks in.
What I love most about Suffolk and any part of the British seaside, is the fresh fish available to eat from nearly every pub or restaurant in town. Not only this but also the small fishing huts that will sell you all sorts of fish caught that very day. Although I live on a farm, I adore fresh fish and seafood, my favourite being the classic Mussels.
Mum & I visited Southwold a beautiful town just north of Aldeburgh where we enjoyed a spot of shopping, walking along the beach and seeing the colourful little beach huts, eating fresh cockles from the fishing huts and a lovely walk along the famous pier.
Also you can't go to the seaside and not enjoy yummy fish & chips on the beach. However this did run the risk of being surrounded by swarming seagulls, who can smell out the slight chance of free fish & chips from miles away. Luckily we survived the seagulls, without a spot of bother.
