Dedham Vale Mill2Mill Swim and Picnic [Aug. 15th, 2019|06:01 pm]

Sunday 11 August: Dedham Vale Mill2Mill Swim and Picnic

That was fun but also a weird experience as I have never swam through so much weed, especially for 2.3 km with hundreds of people. It actually made it quite hard work but at least we had some sunshine and the water was lovely. Lots of lovely cakes at the end. Def returning to that swimming spot on a quieter day.

Now covered in hundreds of bites !!! even more than the mosquitoes bites after france..looks like i got chicken pox...i have had the odd bites but that is something else...hopefully will go away on time for the next river swim...and i hope the futch snails are less bity ;)

Saturday 10 August:Halloween, Paycocke house and garden and Wivenhoe

Our original plan was to go swimming on the coast but the crazy forecast wind made it not likely so instead we went to to Homesense in Chelmford and then a national Trust on our way to Colchester

The Halloween shopping as officially began.



Then we went to visit the pretty Paycocke house and garden in Coggeshall, Essex.
www.nationaltrust.org.uk/paycockes-house-and-garden

Built in 1509 it is a fine example of a Tudor Merchants House.
Pretty house , especially loved the jester fool painting

Grange Barn is a stunning timber-framed barn built sometime after 1240, and it had a little craft fair in it





Aftre we check in our hotel we popped to Wivenhoe for a dinner by the water...cola cider...like a weird alcoholic coke gone flat... interesting... not a Parma violet fan but not bad too ;)

That day I was helping around my mum and accompanying her to various pre op appointment in Montelimar. Afterward I went to my friend veronique and spend the evening in their pool ...I rarely imagine returning to france to live but the ability to have a pool at home does make it so tempting time t time, then i get eaten alive by mosquitoes but a pool and the weather for it is and stupid brexit make it uterly tempting time to time
