The winter storms have revealed some WW2 defenses. There ate 4 dragons teeth that jut out into the sea at low tide and some metal structure of which this bracket was once part of, very rusty and parts are covered in shells.
It’s the Spring Equinox and today I am sketching part of the 780 year old Greyfriars monastery in Dunwich, Suffolk.
On this last day of Winter I collected this Pussy Willow. One of many signs of Spring. Despite the cold weather there were bumble bees among the flowers. Also the Blackthorn is in flower with fresh young green leaves and the Alder trees on the marshes also with catkins (lambs tails).
Today some collected driftwood from Kessingland beach. After this winters storms there is an abundance of wood that may be from old boats or trees, these pieces are really sodden and heavy when collected and often end up a completely different shape and size when dry.
On the Suffolk coast at Kessingland looking North towards Pakefield amongst the Marram Grass and sand dunes.
