Went on a mini road trip around Suffolk and Norfolk with @Trev5 and @Mealor and visited Lowestoft and Ness Point, Gorlston and Great Yarmouth. All top down driving and the hottest day of the year. Attached is a picture taken at Ness Point.
Not sure about mini Road Trip - I just popped out for for some mid week Fish & Chips with friends...!!
But first was a visit to "Ness Point" in Lowestoft to check out the finish to the Race the Sun..
579635

Next stop was "Gorleston-on-Sea" for the important part of the day - Which was almost a fail when the only Fish & Chip shop ran out of chips..!! Lucky a delivery of chips arrived just in time to save the day(y)
Then after an 99 Ice Cream break, had an AMG cruise through "Great Yarmouth"
579636

Parting our own ways, I headed in land to "Bury St Edmonds to pick up some more car parts and then carried on cross country via some nice SLK roads to the A1(M) passing the Duxford Museum:
579637

Never mind the low flying Spitfire, I also had a bird strike (Crow?) that made a hell of a thud, that made the centre light console sun-glass holder drop down...!! Lucky no damage after I cleaned it up.
579638

Finally made it home after 8 hours & 350 mile drive out for Fish & Chips...!!

I had to drop my tablet off for repair today. Once again, I could have taken the truck, but that would be boring. :) It was another nice day without humidity and about 80 degrees, so I took full advantage of making exhaust noises and taking in the looks of other drivers.

Managed to get the top down for a little bit today when i met a few of the chaps for a trip to a very very wet yorkshire dales.
Great day out regardles of the rain...i even managed to think on my feet and turn the cars engine stright off when i hit a small....urrm puddle and coast out of it.
Thanks to the chaps for holding my bonnet open in the wind and rain while i checked the air filter for any water ingress before we swam on to tann hill.
Great fun day out

Pete (@frogfoot), who are these "chaps" with beautiful SLKs included in these pics? Inquiring minds will like to know.
