Full town

We have been visiting Southwold in November for many years.  It used to be a quiet, almost melancholy time of year with an empty beach under cloudy early winter skies. 

This week, the sun has shone more or less constantly.  It is Friday and weekenders have been arriving all day. The car park at the Swan hotel is full, the pubs are packed and the queue at the chip shop this evening stretched some way down East Street.

The clocks have changed now of course and it has been dark since 5.00pm. It is also bonfire night and fireworks are criss crossing the night sky, along with the beam from the Southwold lighthouse.
