postcards from norfolk …
These boots were made for walking – and walk they did.
Along beaches, in woodland and forest, around wildlife reserves and quaint market towns. We surveyed the damage the winter storms had wreaked upon the coastline and soaked up the fine weather which stayed with us all week except for a short shower one morning.
Yes, we visited North Norfolk once again – as you have probably guessed by now.
Looking across the reed beds at Cley village.
The tide retreating from the beach at Titchwell.
High tide at Wells.
Bird watching on the Holkham estate.
Picnic lunch of crayfish rolls on Holkham beach
This was the view from our picnic bench.
Dramatic cloud formations with the sun high in the sky.
Curiosities were found – flowers making their home in a flint wall. A cute sign on Blakeney quay and a beautifully weathered old door in the back streets of Wells.
Thursday morning greeted us with a rain shower so we took ourselves to the nearby market town of Holt to wander it’s narrow streets and charming shops.
A visit to Pensthorpe Nature Reserve on Friday where three Mallard flew on to the roof to entertain us whilst drinking hot chocolate in the cafe.
These lovely birds are Ross’s Geese with gorgeous lavender coloured legs and the noise they make is rather like a depressed groan.
A Birch tree at Pensthorpe – no they aren’t birds nests you can see but a deformity caused by the Gall Wasp.
The winter storms have shifted the pebble beach inland at Salthouse covering the six foot high emergency telephone – if you have an emergency you are going to have to dig deep to find it!
Hope I haven’t bored you to death with my holiday snaps – I know this post is rather long – but we did have a great time and I wanted to share it all with you.
