About the Walk Distance: 4 km (roughly, according to Strava) Time taken: 1 hr Time of year walked: end of August This is a short, circular walk which starts and finishes in the little village of Covehithe and takes you through the Benacre National Nature Reserve and along the rapidly eroding shoreline. It was late afternoon when James and I arrived so we were able to get a parking space outside the Church (there is space for three cars!) but it seems that other people parked on the roadside on...

Our Summer Party

So we headed down to Fisher’s Gin Distillery for an evening of gin tasting, tea making and delicious food. The distillery is in the most beautiful spot next to the Brudenell Hotel and commands wonderful views out to sea.

The Fitflop Walkstar is Back

It was the sandal that launched Fitflop back in 2007 with millions sold worldwide, the Walkstar was a huge hit favoured by many including Michelle Obama and Penelope Cruz. Now for summer 2021, Fitflop have released a restyle of their iconic model (handstands optional). Never has walking been so popular in the UK so their relaunch is well timed. Thankfully the sun has been spoiling us in Aldeburgh lately (hurrah) so we need something cool but equally comfortable and supportive to replace our trainers. The Walkstar fills that gap. At...
