To the lighthouse

To Southwold yesterday. It was a delight being there. Reminded me that what I really want is to live near a small lighthouse. Also reminded me that you can't have a grief-free day out in the South of England. On our return the roundabout where the A12 met the M25 was completely grid-locked and the queue must have been going back for miles. By taking evasive action we eventually got on to a North Circular Road that appeared to be closed entirely in one direction. By the time we got home it takes about an hour to shake off the frustrations of the journey. Given that, and the price of a tank of petrol, is it worth it?
