No. 346: Windbreaks on the beach

Windbreaks on the beach


I can remember back in the early 1960s possibly even the late 50s going to the seaside with my parents, grandma and auntie and trying to help my father put up a windbreak. The theory was we could all shelter behind it free out of the wind and protected from the sand carried on the breeze. Sandwiches never tasted so gritty.

These two brightly coloured examples are on the beach at Aldeburgh in Suffolk (UK) where the wind blows quite a lot of the time. But it is lovely.
