Ha ha ,not too many exciting venues really , couple of pubs for lunch on the deben ,harwich, or maybe walton backwaters and the seals if there are any small children involved ,we are gradually growing the distances and this year i am hoping to add southwold harbour ,also tend to do the clacton airshow , couple of things may be of interest ,rough towers ,and i would like to go on a photographic trip to the orfordness lighthouse as it is predicted to fall into the sea this year ,of course there is always the pergolas and aeriels on orford island

Feed the seal little children.... nice.

Pub lunches sound good too. I know a few areas that way as my parents lived in Rendham. All venues will be new to me and I quite like a bit of photography too.

i am going to have a look at a retubers on saturday in milton keynes, just to get a few ideas as to the way I want to proceed. I am trying to get all the jobs done by April.

I will be doing the Red Sands Towers and also want to go round the Isle of Wight too. Dates not yet set for either.

So, yes... Thanks for the reply and yes, I will bring Sea Fury up for a run.

Personally i buy an annual launch ticket out of Levington marina (approx £225 per annum or £25 a day ) also known as Stratton Hall marina ,on the river orwell approx 4 miles from felixstowe docks ,but from the a12 then a14 over orwell bridge by road ,sometimes go out the deben (Felixstowe ferry ) ,have also launched at brightlingsea over the years and i think 60hp and below is very reasonable from there .
