Two Boats

Whilst walking along the calm and peaceful Aldeburgh Beach, I stumbled across these two boats. The ocean was relaxed which helped with this photograph, Aldeburgh Beach is an unusual beach with regards to the random objects you often find abandoned or the small quirky building that seem misplaced. If you haven’t visited Aldeburgh Beach before I would recommend it, however, the beach itself is very stony so deck chairs are recommended.

Aldeburgh /ˈɔːlbrə/ is a coastal town in the English county of Suffolk. Located on the North Sea coast to the north of the River Alde, the town is notable for having been the home of composer Benjamin Britten and as the centre of the international Aldeburgh Festival of arts at nearby Snape Maltings founded by him in 1948. It remains an artistic and literary centre with an annual Poetry Festival and several food festivals as well as other cultural events.It is a former Tudor port and was granted Borough status in 1529 by Henry VIII. Its historic buildings include a 16th-century moot hall and a Napoleonic-era Martello Tower.

Second homes make up roughly a third of the town’s residential property. The town is a tourist destination with visitors attracted by its Blue Flag shingle beach and fisherman huts, where fresh fish are sold daily, and Aldeburgh Yacht Club as well as cultural attractions. Two family-run fish and chip shops are cited as among the best in the UK – Wikipedia
