We woke Thursday morning in Spain wanting something cold; our still sleeping hosts' fridge had what looked like Spanish Dandelion and Burdock, the front label said no added sugar and indeed it was pleasantly dry and sharp. Half way down the second large glass we discovered that Tinto de Verano is 4%. Other things we learnt in Salobreña were the local authority collects your rubbish EVERY DAY, something the Suffolk Coastal Collection Delivery Team might want to think about as they work towards one collection a year ... just before Christmas so the dustmen can get their
bung; and if Stansted's security have confiscated your jar of Pataks Lime Pickle you can get another one in Super Sol ... which is more than you can do in Solar.

The historic Harwich Electric Palace Cinema is a bit of a trek but worth the effort and at the end of next month it's showing Peter Hall's Akenfield. Made in 1974 the film was shot on location in villages west of Wickham Market and using local people as the cast.

The promenade in Lee on Solent Sunday was noticeably quieter presumably because of Mother's Day. Though a mild day the wind on the front was cutting through, and up, everything you were wearing; wisely dogs were staying out of the water, but then dogs do know how to enjoy themselves.

The Solent (remember there was a brand of menthol cigarettes called Solent when smoking was still legal?) was looking particularly good in Lee on Solent Saturday and on Sunday across the bay in the Calshot Activities Centre the steep track and just one of the many climbing walls were being well used.
