... a bit Suffolk

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.

It will be the 15th annual Felixstowe Christmas Day Dip this year. It was brilliant fun when we snapped it a few years back, we even got our feet wet through the holes in our crocs.

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.

Felixstowe's mayor Doreen Savage has emailed to tell us that the Christmas Day Dip had 352 dippers and raised in the region of £20,000 for the St Elizabeth Hospice. As dip registrations were five or ten pounds that's an impressive amount of sponsorship!
