Beach Fayre #southwold #beautifulskies

As some know we spend a fair bit of time near the wonderful old fashioned seaside resort of Southwold.

At this time of year it can be fairly empty and a little parky but sometimes, as this weekend

the skies can be a wonderful mix

like an spilt paint palette bleeding into each other.

Skies hereabouts are like fingerprints and DNA, each one unique. And, it often seems, in minutes the whole tone changes from the subtle glows of a dull umber to the fiery sheen of raspberry and orange.

The joy is enhanced by the roll of the sand dunes, the gulls on the harbour walls, the pier and the lighthouse and the beach huts,

still sharp coloured before the winter’s battering takes off the edge of this year’s paint job.

And, of course, while Dog chases imaginary balls,

the urge to make an angel in the sand can become overwhelming.

    Looks heavenly, Geoff. I can certainly see the appeal. I love the wide open space and light at the sea, especially when you have it all practically to yourself. Wonderful. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜™

  4. Isn’t there some kind of saying about not being able to take the boy out of the man? I bet if you’d had a bucket and spade you would have tried to dig to China! Gorgeous skies!!

    What a fabulous day and so glad you gave in to the urge to make a sand angel. Our dog loves to run wild on the beach too.


  7. This post was well timed ๐Ÿ™‚ It was summer, and we had our jackets on, the wind was blowing a gale, and we still enjoyed this beach and especially amused by the huts and how people fitted them out. Definitely, added vibrancy to the beach! Great photos!

    Gorgeous photos Geoff!

    I love beach walks in autumn and winter. It’s chilly, but you get the views to yourself and it feels so lovely and fresh. Your dog looks soooo happy!

      Thatโ€™s it isnโ€™t it Joy. That sense that youโ€™ve got it to yourself and no one else realises how fantastic it is. And the wind and the spray make it simply wonderful

      It is rather splendid; very old school but none the worst for that. I know it may sound a little odd but it reminds me a little of Santa Cruz… that had an old world charm when I was there a few years ago… or at least that’s how I now remember it!
