Sunday Picture Post: By the Coast

Put on your hikers, pack your lunch, and don’t forget plenty of water. We’re gonna go walking the coastal route.

We start at the Ravine, North Lowestoft, which takes us down the cliff, to the sea. Foot traffic crosses above us…

Bridge over the Ravine: 29 June 2020

Ragged groynes and concrete slabs = sea defences: 29th July 2020

To our right the sea, to our left the cliffs…

Cliff clothed in greenery: 29 June 2020

Lo! The sun: 29 June 2020

Tree lupin (shrubby shrub): 29 June 2020

Tree lupin grows here in yellow-full abundance

Biting Stonecrop: 229 June 2020

Stonecrop is one of the lowest growing plants of the dune community

A little copse here of evergreen oak (aka Hom Oak): 29 June 2020

Dryads Saddle: 29 June 2020

The queen of the fungi rides again…

WWII installation: 29 June 2020

Listed & protected building come in all shapes. This was part of Britain’s defences in WWII

Moss and lichen paint the dunes in bright colours: 29 June 2020

Spot the fauna: 29 June 2020

We don’t very often see the caterpillars. This one’s a nobby one.

Where do those steps lead: 29 June 2020

Arguably the path less travelled…

I have yet identified: 29 June 2020

(I think it’s soapwort)

Most unexpected, midway down the cliff, growing amongst the furze, an orchid: 29m June 2020

We’ve reached Gunton, and my camera-battery has failed me. And so join me next week when we’ll complete the walk (but in reverse)

    • The back is repaired. I canwalk again. Get a good speed going, cover more distance. And I’ve just bought new hiker-shoes. Roadtested them this afternoon. They’re great for striding out. Not sure about dawdling… 🙂

    Such a lovely lot of photos! What? You don’t carry a spare battery? I am shocked, Crispina, totally shocked! (Says she who doesn’t even have a spare battery, herself 😉 )
