Ds is mad on lifeboats, so we have spent time visiting them (Aldeburgh, Lowestoft) and can also do the beach there if weather good. They are free to visit, although we usually buy something in their shop, or give a donation.

And the transport museum in Ipswich (it's near Holywells High School) is quite good, and not very expensive as far as I can remember.

Or go to Woodbridge, walk along by the river and look at the boats, visit the Tide Mill, and there is quite a good park near the boating pond.

Thanks guys.

I have done Jimmy's Farm today which was awesome, they have opened the Butterfly House today. (oh and Jimmy is yummy!)

Will be doing the car boot sales tomorrow (love sunday mornings!) if the rain holds off.

How many weeks of the hols left? LOL
