The land of the £100,000 beach hut

I didn't get away too early and it was foggy but by the time I arrived in Suffolk the sun was shining. With Minsmere calling I drove past to Dunwich Heath. I wandered down the path and didn't have to try too hard to find a singing Dartford Warbler. I saw about 7 Darties! Nice after the hard winter. Also saw Stonechats and a Marsh Harrier.

I then headed to the land of the £100,000 beach hut .... Southwold. It's one of my favourite seaside towns and has a fine church.

I checked in to the pub and then went to Aldeburgh (the Suffolk coasts other "posh" seaside town). A Sedge Warbler sang in the reed beds by the car park.

I strolled into town for a look about.

Gull pawn!

Minsmere will come, just not tomorrow!

I guess I can take my hands off my hips and stop the foot tapping now...finally pictures up. Well, where to start! The deer pictures are lovely. I do like the bird statue (another one for the box). lol. That box must be getting pretty full by now. The inside of the church has such wonderful stuff. I have to say that I also like that big sea shell ornament on the beach, (at least I think that's what it is.) Being one who really likes Gulls, I love the gull pictues. A great trip by the looks of it. Looking forward to more.

.... I always enjoy your photos and lovely to see ones of places I love and visit often. As you say, it is good to see these through a different eye. Cindy

Hi Cindy, its not a part of the country I go to often, I wish I had done the walk from Snape to Iken.

OC - I've got a fleet of tankers lined up.
