Day out in Maldon with Mum and Dad

As Good Friday was forecast to be the only decent day this Easter, we took the opportunity to drive down to Maldon (home of the world famous salt!) with Mum and Dad for a day out.

Out of the wind, the sun was very pleasant, and we stopped for a coffee break, before a walk around the town, stopping for a drink at The Sunny Sailor on the edge of town before making our way back.

Arriving back in the centre (where we'd hoped to have some dinner) we decided to head home as The Hythe area was starting to get a bit overcrowded (everyone making the most of the one good day!), taking a scenic route back, we stopped off for dinner at The Duke of Wellington in Hatfield Peverel.

Day out in London for Siv and the girls

 Siv and her friends had a day out in London at the Sea Containers restaurant at the Mondrian hotel on the South Bank. They all had a good time (with the bottomless Prosecco for £16!)...and even got dragged into being included in a photos for a stag party that was passing through!

Trip to Madeira for Jose's 60th Birthday

A large group of family from norway went to Madeira for Jose's 60th Birthday Party. We traveled to Machico, to stay at the White Waters hotel. While there, we had lots of family get-togethers at Ingvild and Jose's house, as well as at restaurants like Moinho Velho trying the famous Espetata
On Saturday before the dinner (and surprise Wedding vow renewals!) at the Sao Tiago fort, a group of us went to watch cars racing in the Madeira car rally.
On Sunday a few of us went on the famous cable car up the mountain in Funchal.
A few photos are below, but the rest are on this link:
