Easter Update – 2016
When we woke this morning it felt distinctly unspringlike. The sea was an angry grey, savaged by the full force of Storm Katie as it moved north east across the Suffolk coast. We snuggled indoors as the rain lashed against the windows until noon when the wind quietened and the sun came out.
Time for a walk! South towards the Sandlings and back along the Suffolk Coastal Path. Plenty of evidence of the storm with branches down and swollen puddles across the roads and paths. A couple of happy dogs met us carrying mini branches, tails wagging furiously, before turning and presenting these trophies to their owners.
The walk however, also revealed evidence of the new season; the first bluebells (it’s still March!), periwinkle, celandine, gorse (furse) ablaze with yellow blossom (now filling the paths with their scent), sticky buds on the Chestnuts, fresh green leaves budding on the blackberry briars and the Sizewell Hall drive wrapped with daffodils as far as the eye can see.
Put up new picture of local fishermen (taken just a short distance from Sunrise last Summer). Super detail of the beached boat, rippled reflections against the boat’s hull, dripping fisherman’s dog looking on from the surf (think Constable pics) and in the background a magnificent view across Sole Bay towards Walberswick and Southwold.
