Just been up on the coast in Aldeburgh, a good place from here for a day trip. Lots of fresh fish and sea air as well as galleries and interesting shops. The weather has been warm, so walks on the beach and marshes have been lovely.
The sea is not far from here and last Saturday we went swimming at Frinton. After getting over the ice cold chill of getting in, it was beautifully refreshing to swim in the sea, with clear water and a dissolving horizon - amazing for the first day of October! Although the photo doesn't show it there were quite a few people there, eating lunch outside their beach huts, building sandcastles (the sand is the best on the east coast) and swimming in the sea.
I have started doing a short weekly walk and came across a great website www.walk4life.info where you can type in your postcode, download ordnance survey maps and plot walks, working out how long they are. I have added a page with this link on the website. You can plan walks from the Dairy or wherever you are in the UK.
Here the fields have been ploughed and sown - it is a lovely time to take in the landscape, below are some photos from the last couple of weeks
