Sun, sea and seals in Suffolk

I don't know about you but it seems to me as if this year has flown by at the speed of light and although we've just celebrated Easter, it feels as if Christmas was just last week. Even though I don't really celebrate Easter very much; I might send a few cards and of course prepare a traditional Swedish Easter buffet with smoked salmon, grav lax, pickled herring, boiled eggs and different salads, for me it's still a time of reflection and also of new beginnings. So Easter is a great time to go and explore new beautiful places and to catch up with friends which is exactly what we did, when we headed to Suffolk for a few days. I'd never been to Suffolk before and I went with a fully charged camera battery and an empty memory card with lots of GB space in case the Happy Snapper in me decided to come out to play. The weather was fantastic and sunny and since we were lucky enough to be close to the sea, forest and countryside - all at the same time, we got to explore picturesque fishing villages, go for long forest walks, have sunset drinks with a seal and visit a medieval festival at Framlingham Castle - I felt like I had wandered straight into the movie set of Ivanhoe... where's my armor?! We had an amazing relaxing time, almost like a mini holiday and I really hope you'll enjoy the photos I took of our lazy days. 
Speaking of new beginnings, I'm about to start something new and exciting which I can't tell you much about at the moment, but it means that I unfortunately have to temporarily change my blog schedule, so as of today I will be posting on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for the next little while. I ask you to please be patient with me until I can get back up and post on a daily basis again, and I really hope you'll continue to visit and thank you in advance for your amazing support! Have a nice day everyone! Xx

  14. I come from Suffolk (the county town Ipswich which has it's nice parts and not so nice parts), and I never appreciate where I come from, but your photos are lovely and makes me want to visit Framlingham Castle again! I haven't been since I was in primary school! Also, you're so lucky to see a seal as most of them are in Norfolk :).
