Day #925 Title: Jeero Finds The Golden Nuggets
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Oh dear. Jeero found the stash of Golden Nuggets I brought back with me from our weekend away in the self-catering cottage. The little guy will be on a sugar high for days. He loves anything yellow, especially if it’s food, and was last seen dancing around the kitchen and waving his hands about shouting “Nuggets! Nuggets! I has them! They is mines!”

Day #924 Title: Flatford Window
Location: Flatford Mill
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: We set off home from our weekend in Suffolk and decided to stop off at Flatford on the way past to look at the river and Willy Lott’s Cottage – in the heart of Constable Country. Unfortunately, the weather was less than kind to us (in a torrential sort of way) and so we ended up spending some time in the tea shop and museum sheltering from the downpour. These Geraniums were in a pot on the windowsill inside the Constable Museum. They made a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #34: Through The Window.

Day #923 Title: Big Cat
Location: Aldeburgh, Suffolk
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a really interesting tour around the Adnams’ Brewery this morning and lunch on Southwold Pier, we ventured to Aldeburgh for some pictures and a walk on the beach with an ice cream. There is a large shingle bank facing the North Sea and the local fishing boats have to be hauled up via big tractors such as this. I loved the contrast in colours.

Day #922 Title: Weekend Wanderers
Location: Saxmundham, Suffolk
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Despite the blistering heat, we decided to go on a hike around the local villages and into town (apparently only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun). This is the gang posing for a shot in Saxmundham. We then spent the afternoon exploring Framlingham Castle before changing for a posh dinner in Southwold.

Day #921 Title: Country Retreat
Location: Kelsale, Suffolk
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: My friend Alan is emigrating to New Zealand in August, and is due to get married to his Kiwi finacée over there in October. Rather than having a conventional “Stag” do, he decided to invite 8 of his close friends (boys and girls) on a weekend away in rural Suffolk. We stayed in a wonderful house which had this huge lounge on the first floor, overlooking the countryside. It had a really warm and cosy feel to it, despite its size.
