The village shop twenty yards from my stay last night was not open at 7:45 but the door was open, and just as the surly guy was telling me they were not open I was inside, and he reluctantly served me - a sausage roll, a croissant and a bottle of Lucozade.
Arriving at Bawdsey Ferry at 8:46 the notice said no go till 10:00. Meanwhile my last email post had failed to go with a message saying my iCloud password was wrong . I sat on a bench with a heavy heart anticipating trying to reset that password, then I looked up and saw the ferry was on its way across.
At the other side the cafe had just opened so I went for a coffee and was given a free piece if lemon drizzle cake for being the first customer. I set about the password problem then all of a sudden found the email had gone and the post was posted. From there I've had a long march down Felixstowe prom with kite surfers, golfers, and the crashing sea for company. Now waiting for the ferry.
