Dunwich Heath

Whereas the spit at Orford is growing, the cliffs at Dunwich up the coast are being eaten away at about the rate of 1 to 2 metres a year.  Perhaps the shingle ends up on the ness.  
The tops of the cliffs are covered with a sea of pretty purple heather.  The day was still very hazy but we bought bottles of elderflower fizz and had a wander around.   No pics as my camera battery had died.

Home via Tescos at Woodbridge for some soya milk for me and a UK adaptor.  Another delish BBQ for dinner.  We are very tired.  I cut the arms off a top so I have something cooler to wear tomorrow - the weather is so hot!

  1. The heather is beautiful, was it so when you were there? Just lovely, I have never seen such a field of it in person. Are your falls normally so warm?


  2. This is autumn in Suffolk 2006, sis. It was a VERY warm autumn.

  3. One of my favorite places in the UK is The Hole of Horcum in North Yorkshire. When I saw it, it was covered with heather and just breathtaking! Thank you for reminding me of that day!

  4. Oh how I'd love to stand in a field of purple heather.
