 TheSmiths 2012

In Summer 2012, we rented a large house for us all in Hunstanton. Hunstanton was chosen as being 'mutually inconvenient' for all with the level of inconvenience being inversely proportional to the number of children. The house, Paddling Ducks suited us well as we wanted somewhere that was within walking distance of the beach and large enough to accommodate us under one roof with catering and dining facilities large enough for us to eat together en-famille.

Our party consisted of: Andrew and Sonia, Ben and Becky with daughters Maya and Janey, Matt and Tam with daughter Lana, with Rosemary's brother Nick and partner Amanda joining us for a day at the end. Katy and Ants were not with us as they were still cycling round the world, just about to leave Vietnam and cross into Laos.
