Flags and fireworks
Southwold being Southwold there are flags and bunting everywhere. It's good that events like the Royal Wedding are helping to rid the union jack of its Nationalist and Hard-Right taints. There’s nothing very threatening or exclusive about a flag that’s got a picture of Wills and Kate grinning in the middle of it.
There were fireworks last night on Gun Hill.
It was a clear night and a strong north-easterly wind made for some interesting effects as it blew the light trails inland.
