Bawdsey Ferry

Bawdsey5While our friends and family were here a couple of weeks ago we made a few trips to Bawdsey Ferry. It is just a ten minute drive from here or a 20 minute cycle ride (maybe less). It is at the confluence of the river Deben and the North Sea and is one of the most beautiful places round here. There is a small safe, sandy beach on the river, a cafe selling selling delicious home-made cakes, a ferry that runs on demand over across the river to the dizzy heights of Felixstow Ferry, a beautiful shingle beach, and not much else. Even on sunny days in August it is not busy, as you can see…..

  1. Seems a melancholy beauty to me today as I see your photos. Just my style. Will dream my way in to being there in lieu of actually being there. Thanks for the images.
