On a fine day

Somehow I missed April altogether.

But the unfurling Spring blossom and the lengthening days have reaching for my camera and finding my words.

On a fine day there are few things nicer that a trip up the Suffolk coast.

That long expanse of shingle beach, the weather worn fishing boats and an endless stretch of sky.

The glint of Maggi Hambling's Scallop draws us like magnets, we cannot pass it without a pause. 

We strolled from Aldeburgh to Thorpeness where we stopped for ice-cream and wondered at the mist rolling magically across The Meare.  Back again to Aldeburgh for fish and chips on the beach.

Yes, on a fine day there can be few things nicer.
