Southwold Day 2

Thursday morning's mist had cleared by the time we were breakfasted, at 8.30am.  Our first walk of this trip was along the banks of the river Blyth.

It's just a few minutes walk from our front drive to the footbridge that crosses the river to the Walberswick side.

We turned left and took the coastal path on the opposite bank of the river,  to Walbeswick, Ferry point, through the nature reserve.

Ron started digging in the bank on which boardwalks have been erected. Perhaps he'd found one of the reptiles mention in the on-going habitat management.

Does anyone recognse this white plant on the river's edge.

There was a huge flock of gulls on one of the marsh ponds and a gaggle of Brent geese browsing the vegetation.

It was a lovely walk under clear blue skies.

On the return journey, we had clear views of our holiday cottage (left of the tree) on the opposite bank of the river.

The Harbour Inn(serves fine Adnams ales)  is a few short steps away (behind the blue boat).

Another holiday cottage is between us and the Inn, but doesn't allow dogs.

Visibility was so good,  we had a clear view of "Quay House" (white house on the horizon.)

Such a mild November day, made all the more enjoyable by the availability of the cottage for an earlier-than-planned arrival date.
