around aldeburgh

Despite the preponderance of gray and drizzle on our holiday, there were moments of brilliant sunshine. So we did manage some bracing walks along the sea.

We also explored the town up and down and from one end to the other: amazingly colorful houses and gardens, fun independent shops, and lovely galleries.

And just look at what was across the street from our cottage:

It was one of only a few chain stores in town. But if one must have a chain store, what a super one to have. After all, there's no brand of clothing more 'jolly hockey sticks' than Joules!


  1. Lovely colours on those little cottages. It never ceases to amaze me how different the sea can look, depending on what part of the country you're in.Dx

  2. Someone's coming to run a Joules party to fundraise for our PTA in the autumn. I think it would be far too dangerous to attend!
