Holkham

We parked for free in the car park at Holkham Hall, had coffee and biscuits and set off. Walking down towards the beach we followed the Norfolk Coastal path to the left, walking about 100 metres past a raised walkway that gives you a view point before it takes you to a hide.

In the distance you can see the sea lavender in bloom:
Rosebay willow was just finishing blooming and sending it fluffy seeds into the air:

The tide was very far out, a huge walk for young children but worth it once you get there:
We walked back in the shade:
We did not have an ice cream, £2.50 for a single ice cream with flake (a 99)!

We drove off the The Bowling Green in Wells for another tasty lunch. Unfortunately for me, my stomach area has started to play up again so I couldn't even finish my small baguette.

Fulmodeston

One of our recent walks was a new one, around the village of Fulmodeston. It was about 4.5 miles long and took us around 1 hour and 20 minutes. Herewith some photographs. As we set off down past the church, this sign was attached to a tree. We assumed they meant inside the church:
This is how far I have to catch up DB and E. when I stop to take a photograph. It is probably why, over time, I take less of them!
We came across this huge building site near a farm, farm buildings perhaps?


I think we went to Sculthorpe Mill for lunch. They must have changed chef's we think as their normal good food was pretty average and DB even left half of his sandwich. We all said we won't be going back there for a very long time.
