Nonetheless, we covered a lot of ground, including a brief walk through Burnham Thorpe, birthplace of one of England's greatest sailors, Admiral Horatio Nelson, and a longer sally onto the expansive long tide sands at Holme-next-to-the-Sea.
Taking care, this time, to watch the tide.
This morning, though, we had to go. As we had to be out of the apartment by 10 a.m., that gave us a lot of time to wend our way back to Wonersh. We used it to meander through the B roads of Suffolk and Essex, ending up for a little while on the island of Mersea.There we found this delightful row of pastel-painted beach huts on the edge of the beach. I found them to be very beautiful in their blend of color and simple form with the sand and the sky.
