Kings Lynn to Lowestoft

A late start and a very strong head wind slowed things down after Saturday's good progress. However, the sun was shining and plenty of enjoyment from from seeing dozens of vintage cars getting their weekly work-out. A pint of J2O and the still-substantial remains from the banquet that Anne had packed for me, served a decent lunch in the company of highly tattooed and pony -tailed bikers - yes, the other kind!
Marian greeted me on arrival into Lowestoft around 1800. She explianed that Chris and Janet Brooks - my hosts for the night - had literally just returned from holiday and that it was a good idea to eat out. It turned out that in Lowestoft this is not as easy as it sounds. After two laps of the town, we decided that KFC was going to be as good as it was going to get. Janet and Chris are genuinely kind people. Marian needed again to get back to Ipswich so this meant leaving with the car and gear on Sunday night. We were having a chat in Janet's living room when I received a text from Rebecca, who was going to join the ride on Monday morning. She asked me to confirm that there was room in the car for her case. Hmmm... Mariam was just about to leave for Ipswich... It took all of five seconds for Janet to offer to drive her car with Rebecca's case all the way to Felixtowe. That is all of 60 miles. It is also the mark of a very kind lady. Janet, thanks so much.
