Another bright but cold day here today, we had to pop to Aldeburgh to the chemists ( first side effect of Cols's chemo - let's just say it's the opposite of Dash In A Real Rush Hurry Or Else Accident! and we've tried prunes!) so took the opportunity to look at the sea. It was incredibly clear ( not the sea, that was as grey as it always is) and you could see right out to the shipping lanes with the big freight carriers coming out of the Port of Felixstowe and the wind turbines off the coast.
Slaughden end of Aldeburgh where the most Northerly Martello Tower ( now a Landmark Trust holiday home) stands between the sea and the river behind it. That's an Anthony Gormley sculpture on top of the tower, not somebody about to jump off! The river doesn't run out at Aldeburgh but several miles away at Shingle Street
|Looking out to sea by the Martello Tower, the huge rocks have been put there to protect the bank (I can never get the horizon level!)|
|and turning round to look inland with the river Alde and the flat marshes that stretch inland for several miles|
This afternoon we'll be watching the first part of the final of the Masters snooker that's been on all week and tonight things clash - Call the Midwife, Snooker or Endeavor. A problem there I think.
Thanks for comments yesterday
