We had another busy month in England. In the first week in April we had several enjoyable lunches the first with Susan and David (Heather’ sister and brother-in-law) with and the second with Jill and Nick (Heather’s cousins) as well as finishing the jobs needed to be done at Heather’s Mum’s.
From Grantham we headed to the Norfolk/ Suffolk coast stopping at a campground in between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Two reasons for our visit: Firstly we had a family wedding of our nephew Tom and his girlfriend Emily on the 12 April. Secondly as it was the Easter school holidays Hazel and Didi joined us for a few days prior to the wedding.
Before either of the above we managed to explore a little of the Suffolk coast (and its local pig farms!) and visited the small town of Southwold a lovely traditional English seaside town which we later returned to the morning after the wedding.
With Didi we took a walk through the area of the Norfolk Broads which featured several windmills and past dykes with rushes that used to be used for thatching in the area. Didi now 6 ½ enjoyed walking Daisy (The terrible D’s) who as usual loved being out in the country. After returning to the coach Didi helped Oma (Heather) make homemade pizza for dinner
On the next day we visited the local horse sanctuary where Didi learnt how to groom a horse (miniature size) and Oma decided she wanted to take one or two the big horses home with here. Didi’s favourites were the donkeys particular one which had very stripy ears.
On the Friday we were joined by Kevin and Linda (Tony’s sister and brother-in-law) ready for the wedding the next day.
