Southwold Scene 5/6

Our visit to Southwold in July was quite spectacular in terms of the sea, clouds and wind, but as you will see there was a considerable difference once the sun came out.

 

Opposite the Sole Bay Inn I featured yesterday is this typical seaside beach shop, althougn it is some way from the beach and also a fair walk away from the main shopping centre. It didn't appear to suffer from a lack of customers whilst we were there although how it suvives in the winter must be another story.

 

Note the cobble wall on the right, similar to the one outside Herringfleet Church I featured two weeks ago.

Look how much they enjoy being ONE. And btw, traditional ice cream is so much better than the alternative, Brian, right?!
Brian Walbey: I agree re the ice cream Ginnie, local made any time for me if possible.
Traditional shop as well as the Ice Cream. They are in a decline up here nowadays.
Brian Walbey: Sadly they are in decline everywhere I think Scotia.
The sight of those buckets and spades transports me back to my childhood, and long, happy days on Tynemouth beach. Lovely shot, and that wall is fascinating. (:o)
Brian Walbey: It breathes seaside doesn't it Rosalyn. We had a flying visit to Tynemouth a few years ago, I thought it quite a pleasant place.
I used to love seaside shops full of buckets and spades and flags and silly postcards when I was a kid...still do really
Brian Walbey: So do I to be honest Bill smile

Charming shop Brian: that wall is very typical for the area
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris, like the wall outside the old church I posted two weeks ago.

Instantly think of the seaside
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Aussie.
I really like these shops full of character Brian! Very nicely captured.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
In sepia this would look awesome too
Brian Walbey: I might give that a try Chantal.

Ye Olde Worlde plastic hardware...
Brian Walbey: The kids still enjoy the beach whatever it's made of Ray as they always have done thankfully.

I do like that wall
Brian Walbey: Similar to the one I showed on a church pictures a couple of weeks back vintage, they are peculiar to the area.

Yes, a typical beach shop (in German: Gemischtwarenladen) selling so many tools for the children, ice cream, fudge, sweets....- and a pot with water for the dogs in front of the entrance, of course! -I remember such a shop in Lizard and otherwhere - nice the reflections in the shop window and the unusual name of this shop- beautiful the cobble wall (I remember factually!) - your lady seems to be interesed in some things?
Brian Walbey: All our seaside resorts have such shops Philine. Lovely wall isn't it.
A proper seaside shop, kids delight.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed John.
Lovely traditional seaside image,what more could you need for the kids (young and old!)beyond buckets,spades and fishing nets.
Brian Walbey: And they had some nice looking cakes as well Martin.
One of those, We sell anything, shops! Nicely captured, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Tom.

This is a great shot from the 'waterfront'.
It is as if the belong there.
wonderful view and a lot to see.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, and I tell you a secret, they had some nice cakes in the shop as well!

Looks like they have the bucket & spade brigade well catered for! Sweets in jars, too - rare sight these days.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Alan, typical seaside.
still l ove to see shops like this rather than the clinical perfectly set up type shops
Brian Walbey: So do I Derek.
A typically British scene, at least I think so. Lovely, makes me want to go into the shop to see what's inside because there's sure to be at least one thing I desperately need, but didn't realise!
Brian Walbey: They had some very nice cakes in the shop as well Ellie!!
Love that ice cream barrow Brian, and the sepia version is better for me smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pamela.
