weekend away..

Well, we're back... the children having spent a long weekend at their maternal grandparents', while Beth and I enjoyed the peace of a resort in the depths of East Anglia. for our seventh wedding anniversary.

The time went so quickly - we didn't rush around too much, visiting Bury St Edmunds, a very pretty city (? It's got a cathedral...) - I think I'd like to live there - and Lowestoft (a typical seaside town in so many ways) and generally hanging around the holiday place, swimming, playing 'pitch and putt' and watching TV.

Wind TurbineI might be considered a little geekish (not the first time, I'm sure!), but one of the highlights of the holiday was getting close-up to a real-life wind turbine, just by the sea wall in Lowestoft.

There's also a wind farm up in Great Yarmouth, but when we drove up there, it was getting dark, so we couldn't see it very clearly. Next time, perhaps... (there's a BBC report about the wind farm's construction here) (Windows Media video).

It was a lovely holiday, with plenty of food (I'm sure I've put on a few pounds!), leisurely walks and relaxation - it's difficult to get back to the grind now...
