Happy Birthday, Queen Elizabeth II

AA 2016 Queen bday

Today has been a day of celebration, gratitude and respect in the UK, and much of the world, for this amazing woman who is now 90 years old. She is the longest-serving monarch in British history.

Local celebrations included seaside picnics and lighting of several beacons throughout Suffolk.

Happy birthday and cheers to you, Your Majesty. Hope you’re having a wonderful dinner with your family and wishing you many happy and healthy times ahead.

Clive and I are gradually getting over our Aussie jet lag, reconnecting with Felixstowe friends and working our way through the coming-home checklist.

Thanks for reading. Next week’s letter will be from Felixstowe.

  1. Happy Birthday to a woman I’ve always admired. Love the photos..especially with all the little ones in the family. It must feel good to be home and enjoying the celebrations.

  2. Hi Martha — glad you admire her too 🙂 It seems most everyone does, no matter one’s politics. It is fun to be here this year during the celebrations.
