Long Melford, England Revisited

Dinner Chez Dick and Marilyn

We arrived back in England on Tuesday, courtesy of Turkish Air. Dick and Marilyn kindly picked us up at Stansted and drove us to Long Melford in their new Freelander. That evening we dined Chez Dick and Marilyn. Dick cooked a most delicious pork stroganoff, accompanied by rice and salad, followed by Marilyn's mouthwatering lemon meringue pie; accompanied, as always, by a most superior wine.

Enjoying sundowners. Cheers!

The next day, we walked along the village street to Holy Trinity Church, stopping off for a drink at The Bull, as it was very hot, before venturing into the church for a lunchtime classical guitar concert by Las Guitaras (Nicholas Edwards and Angus Scott). Their programme featured Spanish and Latin American pieces, which we enjoyed immensely! The church was fairly full, but there was absolute silence from the audience as the music resonated throughout this magnificent building. After the concert, we retraced our steps back along the village street for lunch at The Crown, followed by relaxing at home in the garden, before sundowners and dinner - again in The Crown.

Cheers from the family!

After all that exercise, we decided that Thursday was to be a day of R&R in the garden. Philip, Michel and Jacob came to see us at sundowner-time as they had yet to meet David. That evening we went to Gappmaiers for a wonderful dinner. All too soon, our visit had come to an end, and, on Friday, we all drove to Norwich to meet Clare and Jessica in the garden centre for tea and scones. We had a wonderful time at Dick and Marilyn's and hope that we didn't behave too badly, so they will have us back!

Gappmaiers. A typically Austrian restaurant in a typically English village!
