Weekend in pictures

Black Forest gateau, Mr's birthday cake :)
recipe adapted from here, I used a lot less cream though!

Second haul of fresh cherries for black forest gateau

Dunes and seafront at Walberswick

Sweet red gooseberries (you can eat these raw, unlike their sharp green counterparts) and little blackcurrants. Bought from a little cart at the side of the road, with an honesty money box.

We had a lovely Sunday in Suffolk, spent some time walking on the beach and then a drink in a local pub on the way back - which had ales made just around the corner! I do like the Suffolk countryside, and its just on our doorstep.
