Tacky Felixstowe and Dad's Army
You might wonder what the two [Tacky Felixstowe and Dad's Army] have in common. The answer is May Bank Holiday Weekend. The rain kept us at home a lot of the time but on Sunday late afternoon I collected all our 2ps from the piggy bank and we headed down to the tacky end of Felixstowe to play the machine followed by fish and chips:
One of the advantages of Felixstowe is the opportunity to watch various ships come in or out of the docks - this time it was a Stena line ship bound for Harwich:
So you can really see how tacky this part is I took the following two photos:
Don't worry, not all of Felixstowe is like that - I love old Felixstowe and will show you that another day.
On the Monday with the weather not much better, Harry had the brain wave of visiting Bressingham. I must admit, not one of my favourite places but I could come up with no better idea - so off we went. First we looked round the garden centre - the plants there are really healthy but so so expensive. Then it was into the museum and before going on the trains, we visited the Dad's Army display:
Then it was time to visit the rest of the place -I love the painted horse!
A train ride:
Then we took a different train around the gardens:
Overall not a bad day but an expensive one.....
