Felixstowe Christmas Day Dip 2019Hopefully you had a good one?  As previously we enjoyed the Felixstowe Christmas Day Dip despite our Crocs keep filling with pebbles.  This year an Australian presence and ... then, like a football match, suddenly it had all packed up and gone.  Great support for the St Elizabeth Hospice and a ways off but you can already register for the excellent Bubble Rush next year.

Christmas Day Dip in FelixstoweThere was a very heavy frost in Framlingham yesterday Christmas morning.  Defrosting the car took at least 15 minutes contributing to us arriving 30 seconds late for the Felixstowe Christmas Dip a St Elizabeth Hospice fund raiser.  30 seconds is relevant as understandably a lot of the dippers don't stay in that long.  We spent a lot of time fending off mince pies as did this police officer who was surprisingly chatty ... perhaps a bit bored.

Grayson Perry's A House for Essex Wrabness on the south bank of the river Stour is Essex if only just.  From there you can see Grayson Perry's A House for Essex against the cranes of Felixstowe port.  From what we can make out Perry doesn't actually own the house ... can't say we're smitten.
