Far too much interior activity and the need to road test a new bicycle (with stabilisers),necessitated a visit to where we always head when in need of some clear head space; Aldeburgh. After good portion of hearty fish and chips and a fresh stroll down to 'The Shell' (Maggie Hambling's sculpture in honour of Benjamin Britten - actually called 'The Scallop', but not by my kids) we return refreshed and ready for more Wii action, turkey sandwiches and Adnams beer. Maybe it's my graphic sensibilities but I love the linear landscape of the Suffolk coast here. It's about as minimal as it gets. It's all about the light. Isn't it always?
