Sheringham, Cromer, Overstrand, East Runton and West Runton:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

I love the beach here in Sheringham and along the coast, with its beautifully clean stretches of sand washed daily by the incoming tide.  Summer or winter, a walk along the sea shore alone or with family is a pleasure and a privilege that I do not take for granted. Whether in the warm sunshine with the waves lapping gently nearby, or in a howling gale with the breakers crashing onto the shore, the sheer feeling of joy and freedom cannot be surpassed.

What does the beach mean to you…?

The beach for me is my place for peace and quiet when all you can hear is the sound of the waves crashing onto the sand. It also holds many fond childhood memories of time spent with my dad building sandcastles, playing cricket, flying a kite, fishing from the beach or sitting on the sand watching a storm that was out over the sea. Summer or winter the beach always has something different to offer, whether the tide is coming in or going out, and leaving the treasures of the sea behind.

Walberswick and Orford:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Nothing comes close to the feelings evoked by visiting the stunning coastline all around the UK.  From wide, sandy stretches of beach that reach out in the distance as far as the eye can see, to foreboding cliffs, caves and sand dunes.

There is a cyclical and generational pattern that forms from your earliest memories with siblings and parents, to holidays with your own children, and then, visits with  grandchildren.  Each time, taking on the challenge to build that perfectly carved boat in the sand that your own Dad built for you a few decades ago!

Southwold and Dunwich:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Protecting the RSPB Minsmere reserve from the sea gives the beach at Dunwich a very special purpose. To walk it is a bird lovers delight. Listen, can you hear the bells of the 12 lost churches above the roar of the sea and the call of the birds? Move on to the bustling beach in Southwold and hear a very different soundscape – the delightful Victorian seaside town spills onto the beach by way of the the beach huts and pier. Eat fish and chips sitting on a bench gazing out to sea and all seems right with the world.

Cley-Next-The-Sea and Blakeney:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

The beach is a way to the sea.  My boat at Cley supplies much of our local produce direct from the sea, including crab and lobster.  There’s a sustainability to the whole process and to our part in the local community.  It’s all part of Cley.

Aldeburgh:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

The beach a place where I’m reminded that all my problems are so small that they’re not worth worrying about – it puts everything into perspective. The waves will come and go, the tide-line will move and no amount of worrying will stop them. Flinging off my shoes and losing a couple of hours throwing a ball for the dog or paddling about in rock pools is like therapy, I always leave the beach happy and content with the world.

What the beach means to me?
I love the sound of the waves rolling over the shore, the sound of the sea gulls and other bird life. People walking along the beach on their own or with dogs. The smell of salt water in the air.
I would find somewhere to sit and gaze out to sea watching the boats go past, large cargo boats going to distant shores and small sailing boats, people in speed boats and various sailing craft.
I find it mesmerizing just gazing out across the blue yonder, especially when you are on holiday and have time to do this.

Winter walks, seagull squawks, snuggling from the wind and rain.

Summer sun, sandcastle fun, paddling and digging holes for son.

Beach and harbour, island creeks, muddy marsh, dunes and Wreck.

Adventures…high tide, low tide, ebb and flow,

Whatever, whenever there’s no better place to go
