This is my first Five on Friday post. I've been reading them over on a lovely website called Love Made My Home.
For my first Five on Friday post I'm going to post five pictures of places I love to visit. This isn't in any particular order - love them all! Here is the Five on Friday Link so you can check out what everyone else is up to.
1. Munising, Michigan. This is from our first trip there in 2012 when
Mum came to visit. We stayed at The Sunset Motel on the Bay. It's a
lovely place. We've been there every year since our first trip. This is
one of the glorious sunsets that can be seen over Lake Superior from the
2.Christchurch Mansion in my hometown of Ipswich. It is a Tudor brick
mansion house in the middle of the town centre. It is situated in
Christchurch Park which is a 70-acre park. As a child I loved visiting
here - there were fairs and fireworks here and great play areas. As an
adult I always take a walk around the park when home and usually spend
time either in the mansion (it is now a museum and open to the public)
or sitting outside on one of the benches in front of the mansion and
reading a good book.
3. Abbey Gardens, Bury St. Edmunds. The gardens are a stone's throw away from the town centre and when Mum and I visit we always stop in Gregg's and pick up a pasty or sandwich to take down to eat. The flowers are beautiful here and so are the Abbey ruins. There is also a great cathedral nearby. I find this park just so peaceful. There is something about the place that just makes me feel happy.
4. Felixstowe. May seem like an odd choice. It's a seaside town about 14 miles from Ipswich. I have great memories of taking the train with friends on a Sunday afternoon to go visit Mannings (amusement park) and the market. As an adult I have great times there with Mum. It's our favourite place to get Fish & Chips and sit up on a bench above the gardens and eat them.
5. Mackinaw Bridge. We've stayed here a few times in the last few years on our way up to the U.P of Michigan. At night it is a beautiful sight. The bridge is lit up and quite beautiful. The hotels we have stayed by have been right on the lake and we always take a walk along the beach as the sun is going down. It is just beautiful.
There are a lot of places I've visited just once, but these are the ones that have me going back time and time again. They are filled with lots of wonderful memories. Thanks for sharing them with me!
