One of my last days spent in Suffolk was a day spent by the seaside. Aldeburgh is one of my favourite beaches. Despite its stony shore it has such a good chip shop. A visit is never complete without a bag of chips, open and dowsed with salt and vinegar.
There was such a beautiful hazy winter sunshine and the wind had died down. Perfect for a walk along the beach.
On the beach had been placed a Christmas tree. It was a local art project where people could leave messages for those who weren't spending Christmas with them. The remembrance tree was decorated with moving messages and stones around the base had been written on too. Staring out to sea was a moment for reflection and calm.
Finally, we reached Maggi Hambling's Shell which sits on the beach in Aldeburgh. It reads ' I hear those voices, that will not be drowned'. In a world where uncertainty prevails don't let your kind hearted voice be drowned.
