We have been fortunate in finding excellent accommodation. Thank you. The weather has been ideal for walking and we have enjoyed good food. Our favourite eating place is The Regatta at Aldeburgh, which is as good as it was on our last visit to Suffolk. The coast has been a delight - quite different from home, and not as rugged or sandy.
