Lunchtime - a picnic at Snape Maltings - a collection of granaries and barley malthouses beside the river Alde.
The buildings now contain a collection of shops, restaurants and galleries (I went in one - the paintings were mostly local amateur pieces) and a fine, large, world-class concert hall.
Malt-houses have an immediately recognisable shape: broad roofs culminating in a number of square vents sticking up out of the ridge. The distinctive vents emitted a white steam and a sweet smell during the four days the barley was roasting in the kiln. How nice to imagine that.
A little boat putt-putted past us on the river as we ate lunch.
