Man on a Beach Visits Walberswick

$article->leadphoto->description

Man on a Beach is a fantastic seaside blog featuring films and interviews with beach-goers and stunning views.

It was started in the West country by a beach-lover who before long found himself venturing futher afield. Now regularly taking trips around the whole of the UK, he meets local beach-goers, including a core of people who regularly swim in the sea every morning. His main line of questioning for his interviews is 'what does the beach mean to you?'  

He has discovered that the beach means different things to different people. It could be to inspire people and rekindle creativity. Some visit as part of a daily routine to get out and walk. Others go purely for fun to walk a dog, play on the beach or to go and think and be reflective as they watch the waves lap in and out. Find out what happened when he came to visit Walberswick! 

Every morning a group of locals nicknamed DK, The Pirate and The Poet walk down to the beach to take an early morning dip. Come rain, shine, snow or sleet, they are always there. Sometimes if the sea is really rough, they feel it may not be wise to swim due to the fast current, but there is rarely a day that they do not venture in.

'Pirate John' and DK are accompanied by Clare who blogs about their swims, the sea, the beach and any changes daily.
On their way back they often stop off at the local pub, The Anchor, for a fresh pot of coffee by the fire to warm up and to chat to Luke the bar manager. They are well known in the village for their antics and met with much bemusement, good humour and banter. Often asked "surely you didn't go in today?" the usual response is "but of course we did!"

A truly inspiring group who always have a smile, a wave and a story to tell. Catch them if you can early in the morning on Walberswick beach as the sun rises.
