Boats 1

We’re in Aldeburgh again, a lovely seaside resort in Suffolk, taking a long stroll North along the coast towards Thorpeness. You may remember my ‘Snooks the Dog’ post and the boating pond here in Aldeburgh?

There were many little boats pulled up onto the beach and of course I had my trusty Canon with me, so snapped away as we walked.

Though the shot above shows the boat in more detail, I prefer the first photo, with the reedy grass blowing in the breeze in the foreground and the blue sky horizon.

I presume these were all fishing boats at one time or another;

Boats 4

though now some of them looked more as though they were lived in, or used for storage, than sailed!

Boats 5

This cute little red one looked like a toy boat! At first I thought it was the Life Guard boat; it certainly looked ready to launch at a moment’s notice. But on googling the boat number (Hooray for Google!) I discovered it is a fishing boat called Spring TideΒ and is in active use.

And where would all these boats be without an anchor, to keep them in their place?

Erm, perhaps not this one! I think it would sink these tiny boats if they tried to take it on board!


post script: These photos were taken last August, when I was in the UK. Since I only post on my trip about once a week, it is taking a while to get through all the photos!

    I definitely love the first photo, too, because it’s a wonderful composition. Thanks for sharing your walks with us, Scifi, regards from dark and rainy Hamburg

      Sorry to hear it is dark and rainy there today – hopefully this little sunshine helps πŸ™‚

    I wonder what a tale these little boats could tell, of catches lost and fishes caught, and waves that rose and fell. I couldn’t resist! Love the pictures.

      Yes, the boys bought seafood to eat (I’ve never liked it!)
      Trying to get my head around boats wrapped in plastic for the winter . . . πŸ˜€
