Last gasp…

We’ve woken every morning this week to damp, foggy, grey weather. The trees are dripping, the ground is squelching. This time of year we try to be ‘outside’ as much as possible, knowing that it’s going to get a lot greyer and a lot wetter before it gets brighter and warmer. So even though the house and surrounding fields were shrouded in mist yesterday, Chris bundled the boys into the car with boots, warm sweaters and Balaclavas (yes, Balaclava season is here again 😉 ) and they headed off to the coast – some 9 or 10 miles away – to get some ‘fresh air’, leaving me toiling in the yarn shed. They were gone for hours, which was a little surprising given the inclement weather. This was in part due to a flat battery (one of the little surprises the antique Volvo like to spring now and then!!) but not entirely. Chris took the camera and I am glad he did because when they reached Walberswick they found not misty, murky gloom but this…

Just the most amazing light!

A very low tide…

That had left warm, shallow pools…

Balaclavas were soon banished, shoes and socks dispensed with, trousers were rolled up and full on summer beach play commenced! In late October…

Wonderful!

It’s a good thing Chris took the pictures… I’d never have believed him otherwise! When they got back home, late afternoon, the mist was still laying heavy on the fields and the garden was still dripping, soggy & grey. It must have been magical…

  1. Walberswick is one of my most favourite places in all the world, but I have to go on holiday to visit there. Luckily it’s usually an annual affair, although we’ve missed this year, but oh to live down the road! Would you countenance a visitor to the wool shed when we’re down your way again?
