Scarily eagle-eyed readers may have noticed my sidebar changing from “I am a 14 year old baker…” to “I am a 15 year old baker…” ! This past week I celebrated my birthday in a rather wonderful way… On the last day of our weeks’ family holiday in Suffolk, on my birthday, we got up early (I say early, I mean 9…) and strolled down the main street to Orford Quay. Here we were greeted with the pretty boat Lady Florence, below.This was to be our transport for the morning. The planned route along the river and up to the next town Aldeburgh was explained to us and off we set! My family set up camp at the back of the boat where we enjoyed fresh orange juice in the sunshine and opened presents (of which more another time…) before the time came to head into the saloon for a rather delicious birthday brunch. Why such a “birthday” brunch? Because…I had a candle in my breakfast! It was unexpected but definitely appreciated. And the brunch itself totally delicious and undeniably filling. But after we finished this mammoth breakfast, there was more time out on deck, enjoying the sunshine and the countryside view… …followed by yet more good food – apple pie and chocolate muffins! We had a lovely morning, sailing and eating and laughing. The boat took us all around the local area, and it was interesting to see places we had previously only noticed from a car from the river perspective. And the sunshine certainly wasn’t a hindrance! All in all, a lovely birthday treat and one I would definitely recommend. Find out more here at the website!
