SNC 047 – Wed 10 Jan 2007


Went on a day out (the only way of really getting away from the studio) to Southwold on Saturday in the pouring rain. The perfect weather for a day in the home-town of Adnams Ales. First stop The Swan for a coffee and a warm-up by the fire. A paddle along the main street then to The Lord Nelson for lunch and a glass of special cough medicine. In the winter Adnams brew what they call "Old Ale" (right).
