Sunday Picture Post: Another Day by the Sea

2nd March 2021, not the warmest of days. Mist hangs heavy all day. But we’re geared up for the walk, so we’ll do it.

Starting at North Lowestoft where the sea has swallowed the beach…

2nd March 2021

We keep to the prom…

2nd March 2021

As at Gorleston just north of here, the sea has carved channels and mini cliffs into the beach over recent months

2nd March 2021

The tides have exposed hard black oil, remains of an oil-tanker disaster in the English Channel in 1978

2nd March 2021

We decide to leave the beach and climb the cliffs the easy way…

2nd March 2021

Looking back down… such a misty day, it isn’t clearing

2nd March 2021

Atop the cliffs is heathland…

2nd March 2021

We leave the cliffs to meander through a woodland…

2nd March 2021

But even here this mist is holding. Oh well, back to the cliffs… and more of that wretched oil. You can see the fluted edge of the old sea-defences. All gone. Violent tides here now with much cliff erosion

2nd March 2021

We reach Hopton where much has been done to stop the erosion…

2nd March 2021

Looking towards Gorleston, invisible in the mist… this would be our normal walk, but we decide to take a “drier” way.

2nd March 2021

At Gorleston the picture is the same. Mist. No vistas. Cold. Damp. From there we catch the bus back to Great Yarmouth

We came upon several signs of new life, but I’m saving those for Tuesday! Hope you enjoyed this rather chilly, misty March walk
