Wells next the sea and tennis...

Well, Andy is out and it is not surprising, he is just not playing as fluently as he normally does. It was almost a re-run of the Nadal match in the French Open. Mind you, he has won Queen's 2009, 2011 and 2013 so guess this wasn't going to be a winning year with those facts, and probably for the best. I really can't see him doing well at Wimbledon either but finger's crossed.

Mind you, as I am a great fan of his, once he is out, I don't watch much except maybe for the final. Guess I can get on with other stuff and not have to set the recorder! Tons of weeds to get rid of in the front flower garden!!

We went to Wells next the sea for our walk this week. Forgot to take my camera so DB had to use his phone. I don't know what it is but when I haven't got the camera, I keep forgetting to remind him to take photo's.

Anyway, we parked up the top end of town and walked down the harbour walk towards the beach. Boy was it hot. We strolled along the beach, came back via the woods and walked back to town.

Stopping by at Arthur Howells the butchers, we all got some food. E. 10 pork chops for £5, us the same plus 1.5 kilo of sausages. We had remembered to take a cool bag but could only find one freezer block so had to make do.

Herewith just a few pictures:


We thought we'd drive along to Holkham Hall Cafe to partake of a sausage baguette (they use Howells sausages in them) but horror of horrors, they were closed for renovation. Come on guys, you've had all winter to do it!

Getting pretty hungry by now, we drove to Brancaster Staithe to visit The Jolly Sailors pub for lunch. We all had a pulled pork baguette in B.B.Q. sauce, side salad and crisps, very nice.

Today, DB and myself took ourselves off by train to Ely. We had recently purchased a "Two together" rail-card". Our photo's are on it so no-one else can use it and it gives us 30% off fares. We spent a nice few hours there, shopping, walking around trying to discern walks, ate at the wonderful Peacock's Tea Rooms, then caught the train back.
