Picture the scene: It’s Saturday morning, you’ve slept in (rare treat), you check the ole BBC weather app and it tells you that you have approximately 4 hours until you need to get Noah on the phone and check into the ark. What you gonna do? Go on a mini adventure, of course! I mean, you could do adult things like clean the house, weed the garden, blah blah blahhhh but isn’t life too short for all of that whilst the sun is out?
I may or may not have mentioned in previous posts that my lovely other half Daniel used to be a pretty fine chef and one of the places he worked was The Crown and Castle, Orford. So when I asked him what he would like to do for the few hours we had until the rain came, he suggested hopping in the car for lunch and a stroll around his old stomping ground. We live around 45 minutes from Orford, which is in Suffolk near Woodbridge if you aren’t familiar with the area.
We decided on The Butley Orford Oysterage for lunch, eating fresh locally caught oysters and a seafood platter along with a generous glass of wine, naturally. I would definitely suggest this quaint little place if you can ever visit, it is worth the trip. From there we went on to the quayside, gazing at what felt like every single house on the walk down, much to Dan’s dismay (hashtag blogger boyfriend problems). And to finish the lovely little trip we visited Pump Street Bakery, quite famous in these parts! They produce the most gorgeous chocolate bars, you can find these stocked all over the country and are a must try. But on this visit we didn’t indulge in the chocolate but instead treated ourselves to croissants for the next days breakfast, which FYI went down a treat.
This concludes our short but sweet little trip to one of most picturesque villages in Suffolk, what a nice way to spend a Saturday if I do say so myself!
