47 Hamilton Terrace - Saxmundham Hotel, Swanage
Left the house in car for Waterloo to catch the 10.30 train. Clara was there to see us off. Roads closed because of Royal Proclamation and we had a mad rush up to platform. Touch and go if Mabel could make it. Comfortable journey.
Disappointed at first in our quarters but they grow on one. Walked down to the Grosvenor Hotel after tea where we stayed in our palmy days.
Sunday, 8 June
Saxmundham Hotel, Swanage
A horrible day for our first: cold and wet, but we enjoyed ourselves. Went ot church close by - an ugly erection but a very nice service and sermon. Freda and her sister Mrs French drove over from Studland in afternoon and took us back to tea. A delightful house and garden, husband and eats! Freda looking very aged and changed.
