Hopefully 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.

There 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.

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.
