As it was such a beautiful sunny day here in the Fens today, we went for a drive……..well it actually turned into an all day one, the blue skies just kept us going and we ended up driving into Suffolk, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and back along the coast. Although the sun shone, the temperature has suddenly dropped from Christmas Eve and is now cold, which is what it should be for this time of year. We passed lots of lovely churches, I did manage one round tower and two ancient churches, a ruin and noted some for a further trip…… but I still have my cold and I know that I’m still not well, as I would have tried to have visited a lot more, the cold weather was getting the better of me……..churches are not the warmest of places, but at least they were all open, even though it was Boxing Day. The peacocks, well at the start of our journey, we passed Peacock City, a name I given an old run down farm not too far from where we live in the Fens, it is such an amazing place, there are peacocks everywhere. They lay in the dry ditches, in the woods and the old farmyard, dozens of them. I only managed to get a few photos today, as the majority of them were in the ditches and in deep shadows, not good for taking photos. Hopefully church posts will follow soon.
