Sometimes a low key meeting turns out to be special. Session 44 at Time and Tide Museum was a chance to think about our Almanac production with artist Ian Brownlie, and the museum stood us a delicious lunch in the Silver Darlings Cafe.
Session 45 with naturalist and writer Mark Cocker was on a cold windy December day at Burgh Castle. We started later than usual, so that we could see winter birds at dusk. Mark talked about his lifelong love of birds and nature, about us as natural creatures, and about local naturalist Arthur Patterson, aka John Knowlittle, who was born in the Great Yarmouth rows and died in 1935.
We walked our walk, and as dusk began to fall we stood at the corner of the Fort and watched 8 marsh harriers wheeling above the bushes on the slopes to the marsh.
Session 46 was on the Winter Solstice, our celebration lunch at Sams Cafe involved an ode to the Brussels Sprout, some serious singing and a trip to the Lowestoft Parcels Office, another venue for our exhibition next May.
