Today was a fairly reasonable day. We made good progress passing through Caister, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Southwold, Dunwich, Aldburgh, and Felixstowe before heading inland to just outside Ipswich where we spent the night.
Traffic was mostly light with only a couple of sections of slow going and the temperature was a couple of degrees cooler than the previous days which made life a bit more comfortable for us.
For a few miles there had been an ever increasing rattle coming from the gearbox which was quite disconcerting. Something had to be done and with roadside parking impossible to find we stopped in a pay & display car park in Southwold where I removed the gearbox cover to investigate. The cause was soon spotted, some of the nuts holding the gear change remote had worked loose and it was chattering about. A couple of minutes work with a spanner fixed that. I checked the oil level while it was easy to do it, added a drop and put everything back together. Normal service was resumed.
Dunwich was a very rare place these days. A massive car park which was free with a request to put a donation in the box. You don't see that very often in theses days of viewing the motorist as a cash cow. We had a pleasant short break there.

It became apparent that my plan to video the whole journey with the dashcam wasn't going to work when I tried to save today's video to the tablet and found a lack of space on the hard drive.. That, plus the fact that editing it would have been a nightmare and far too time consuming I decided to keep the cam ready and only record what I though may be of interest. This may well be after we get back.
Take an old couple and an even older car, add in over 4000 miles of driving and this is the result. This is the story of Numbum's drive round the UK coastline, driven by Owen and ably navigated by Pam. We hope you enjoy the journey. We will.
