Intermission - a Day Out of London
Glossing over the mistake I made of posting Sunday's picture before Saturday, I'll move on to the story of what this Londoner did for this weekend.
On Friday, I lobbed the bikes onto the back of the car and Mrs Ham and I headed off to Southwold in Suffolk. Now I know that this is a London Blog, but this village represents so much of what people look for in England, that I make no excuses. This is a town untouched by chain stores, crime is not a problem, pubs abound, the gently undulating countryside is serene (Constable's Dedham lock was filmed just up the road in the 19th Century) and all is at peace with the world. If you are looking for a place to unwind from London's stress, I can thoroughly recommend the family run Blyth Hotel in Southwold - their bar spoke to me in a language I can understand.
Normal London service will be resumed tomorrow.
