We awoke this morning, after a brief spectacular sunrise, to a grey and gloomy day which, as the day progressed degenerated into rain. Following another excellent breakfast we packed and loaded the car and then wandered down to steps to the East Pier. By this time the wind was biting and bowing up somewhat. Heading back for coffee, we stopped off at Fortune's Kippers where the were just loading up the smoking ovens with herrings and bacon. We bought some of each to bring home. What is there not to like about a good kipper. After coffee in the old chapel jet museum and restaurant it was back up the steps one more time to beging the dirve home. Not straight home, however, as we called in at Burton Agnes Hall for what is rapidly becoming a traditional visit the the hall which is beautifully decorated for Christmas. We find that it gets us in the mood for the festivities to com.
