We finally took a day to just go have fun– no errands, no house-hunting, no moving, no taking care of business! We picked a coastal town– Aldeburgh– and put it into our GPS, and just hit the road. The drive itself was really nice! We spent about an hour winding through small towns on country roads, and then we were there. The coast really sneaks up on you: it’s all country and cows and farms, and then suddenly, you’re looking at the sea! There is almost no sand, just dunes of rocks with a little greenery here and there. The thin layer of sand in the water just floats on top of more rocks below.
Luckily, Amelia knew just what to do with the pebbles!
We walked into town, and plenty of people were out, eating ice cream and sailing their little boats in this shallow pool.
Amelia got in on the action, too.
The town of Aldeburgh is really cute. I loved the colorful old houses…
And the boats were very charming, too.
We had such a fun day, and loved the opportunity to check out our surroundings and find this great little spot for family days. It’s nice to be doing a little less transitioning, and to feel more like we live here!
