Postcard by Juliet Blaxland
Following a week of local based bumbling: pubs, beaches and bikes - for the next week it's Southwold here we come (isn't that a Smiths album?)
If you've never visited, the highlights include: Suffolk's tea colured sea, the Adnams brewery, Aspall's Suffolk Cyder, the Southwold Picture Palace, the pier, crabbing in Walberswick, one of the UK's finest chippies rated Number One (here) just a nip away in Aldeburgh, - and Southwold's high street lighthouse. But like Mrs PM says - why the high street? Aren't lighthouses meant to be on a rocky outcrop, spit or somesuch - not plonked next to the pub and brewery surely?
If you've never visited why not take a taste test here - Southwold tour
PS We're not leaving until tomorrow - but I'm bored of usual holiday tunes (XTC, Beatles, Monty Python albums) having played them too many times - so any recommendations for must have holiday listens would be appreciated..
So, I'll leave you with Two summer soundalikes that were on my subs bench for the last Podrophenia..
Jack Costanzo - Peter Gunn Mambo
Dave 'Baby' Cortez - Watermelon Man
And a guest mix which should be appearing on The Right Side Of Funky sometime over the weekend
See you in week's time and I'll try to send a postcard..
Not sure about that manky mud-pier, nothing more scenic in the vaults then?
