We set out early, a bus to Lowestoft. It’s no great distance, about 10 miles. We’re walking back… by beach and cliff and woods and back to cliffs and beach. It’s a walk of two parts (second part next week)
The tide is high when we arrive at Lowestoft and there’s not a lot of blue in the sky.
In fact, it’s a decidedly grey day. Why, even the gulls are grey!
I do hope the weather improves; I hope we find some colour. Hey, here’s colour. This beach (north end of Lowestoft) is almost a war museum, so many remains of WWII coastal defences
Moving to Gunton Cliffs and Warren… a spring
At Gunton the dunes are alive with golden gorse
More war relics…and someone with a sense of humour
We climb the cliff. This being compacted sand (not sandstone) we do it the safe way, using the steps provided
Atop the cliff a veritable forest of evergreen oak, wind-wrung and wrangled
And more gorse, so welcome on such a grey day
And soon from the gorse-land we’re into the woodland and here we’re greeted by a little green pool
Meandering through… so easy to get lost although this woodland is no great size
…until we come to the heart of the woods…
What a beautiful place to stop, take a breath. We’ll return next week when we’ll head back to the sea
Hope you enjoy. Sorry about the weather; I’m not in control of that!
