Suffolk sketches

A while back we had a glorious couple of weeks' holiday in Suffolk.  This being "Constable Country",  a must was to visit Flatford Mill and Willy Lot's Cottage (made famous in the painting "The Haywain").  Indeed, the whole area provided a wealth of sketching opportunities - rustic villages, windmills and busy harbour scenes.

Pin Mill on the River Orwell is a favoured spot for artists, drawn to its 17th century inn and old sailing barges.  Unfortunately, the day we tried to get there the only access lane was almost at a standstill with the cars of other sightseers, so we had to give it a miss.
