It started off by visiting the vintage and contemporary market at Ipswich waterfront. I am generally not too keen on Ipswich but the waterfront is a really nice spot. I love old wooden boats and Thames Barges and there were a few moored up there. These were my faves!
Having the market there really brings the whole area to life. It was buzzing with people with a good atmosphere. It was great to catch up with some vintage friends!

General crowds with lots of people there this morning.
I got talking to the owner who I discovered was involved in organising the mid Suffolk vw festival where I did a stall earlier this summer. He had bought this campervan in California and shipped it over. It has been quite sun faded and worn out and he had completely done it up. I think he's done a great job, don't you!
I headed back home around lunchtime and then went over to my parents house with the girls. Sitting at my parents house was the Triumph Herald.
This is a car that has been in the family since the 1980s when my dad rebuilt it. I have always wanted to drive it but never really have. Well I am finally on the insurance and today I went on a proper drive in it for the first time! It was BRILLIANT! It will soon be coming to our house for a holiday!! After the spin about, we decided to head down to the beach hut as the sun had come out. It was beautiful down there. Spotted another campervan in the car park there too!
There was quite alot of sand on the beach today and we spent time trying to find amber (even though we've never ever found any before!) and generally pottering about.
We didn't find any amber but we did find some well worn sea glass. Just as good!
