One of my college roomies lives in New Zealand (the other two from our senior-year Mod Quad live in Connecticut and Alaska). I last saw NZ roomie when we were both in New York, back in 2009.
She was in England for a wedding (her boyfriend was the best man), and came and visited us in Suffolk for two days. WOOT!
I took a day and a half off from work - I picked her up at the Bury station, we St Edmunds-ed ourselves, then we went to Ickworth and romped through the gardens and parkland, and then came home and made veggie shepherd's pie. Yum!
The following day, which was the first properly cold and autumnal day we've had, we adventured coast-ward.
We visited Framlingham castle (as windy as I've ever been there - it was tempting to cling to the railings!), and then revived ourselves with tea in Framlingham. A cream tea, even. See? It was excellent.
We then went to the seaside, Mr. Todd, down by the sea! Liz may or may not have serenaded the seagulls and me with this.
We took lots of pictures, including this one, of four seagulls pointing into the wind:
And this rock, which I liked. These were all taken with my new S95, by the way. Look at that blurry background!
And then we met John in Ipswich and went out for a curry at Indian Palace in Ipswich, after a recommendation from our veg box guy. Excellent.
Too bad she lives so far away - we had a blast!
