First Suffolk Meetup

Five of us met up this afternoon at Southwold - Vicki, Dawn, Tracey, Shirl [plus husband, daughter and dog] and myself. I got there first and nervously awaited the arrival of the others. Next to arrive was Vicki and Dawn, shortly followed by Tracey. Soon we were all chatting away about numerous subjects and then Shirl arrived with her family. We then left the pier area and went to the boating lake as Vicki had seen a picture of the tea shop there. Despite having visited Southwold for the last 25 years I had no idea it was there:
As we went through the gate way we spotted the 'lake' minus boats but it had at least two families of ducks swimming around.
As we walked closer we could see the chairs outside but it wasn't til we got closer we spotted the variety of seating and the blankets and cushions scattered around.

I'm afraid I didn't take any close ups so you will have to wait for Vicki's photo of us all together and Tracey's photo of her scone and tea.
Thanks for a lovely afternoon, ladies and a special thank you to Tracey for a little gifts and to Vicki for arranging it
Snape Maltings next time, I believe


  1. Was a good afternoon wasn't it - great to put faces to names :)

    Definately do it again - Snape in the Autumn sounds good to me :)

  2. It was lovely to meet you, Viv. Lets hope we can arrange another meet-up before too long.

  3. Wonderful to meet you today! Looking forward to Snape Maltings in the Autumn ... :0)
