We have spent a wonderful two days in Chestnutt cottage this past weekend. We came up to work in the garden, - trimmed the shrubs till dusk, leaving tidying up till next day, then set off to Aldeburgh Cinema to see the film 'Mrs. Careys' Concert' which was being shown as part of their Documentary Festival.
The whole evening was a rare treat. We watched the inspiring film and afterwards listened to the film's director,Sophie Raymond, and Emily Sun, the lead violinist of the school orchestra,' In Conversation', chaired by Diana Quick. The talk , not only added depth to our understanding about how the film was made - but THEN- to the delightof us all, Emily and then the director, Sophie Raymond played and / or sang for us.
I read in the East Anglian today, the good news that this festival will be a yearly event. We look forward to next year's screenings.
On Sunday the weather was perfect .Marvel at the long shadows in the above NOVEMBER photos.( Can this really be November?) Southwold was at its best - the waves white, the sky blue, the pier bustling but not too crowded, the cafe busy serving afternoon teas in the sunshine. We walked to the end, gazed out to sea. Chris checked the horizon! We felt on holiday.
