Overstrand to Cromer

We drove to Overstrand this week and walked to Cromer along the cliff top:
The golf course was on our left. I am really glad I don't have to aim a ball here, with all these bunkers around it:

I forgot to photograph Cromer but it wasn't too busy. We bought ourselves a nice ice cream. DB has apple crumble, E. had gooseberry and I had rhubarb and ginger.

We then walked back along the beach and had lunch at the cafe in Overstrand at the top of the steps. All in all a 4 mile walk which took us 1 1/2 hours.

Brancaster Staithe

Our walking companion E;, is away on holiday this week so we took ourselves off to the above named place for our walk. Itg was another one of those days weather wise where you don't know what to wear coat wise.

DB settled for short shirt sleeves and a light sleeveless jacket. I settled for long shirt sleeves, a lightwieght cardigan and sleeveless jacket. He was probably cold to begin with whereas I was just right.

Later in the walk though, especially when out of the wind, I got too hot so had to remove my jacket.

Herewith a few pictures. The first two show the glory of two wild roses even if you can't smell their divine scent:

We were walking on a dodgy bit of path here but you could hear all the lines on the masts tinkling in the stiff breeze:
Says it all really, so much destruction of property and land:
All in all though, a grand walk.

Yes...

We are still walking every week, as stated before, going over many of our old walks. We were getting a bit worried that we might have missed the best of the Bluebells and Wood Anenome at Foxley Wood, so that is where we ventured last week for our 212th walk!

There were not many parking spaces left and those that were available, were quite wet and muddy. Not to worry though as we have full wet and dry walking gear.

After having our coffee and biscuits I went to get my walking bag only to find I had left my walking boots at home and the only things in the bag were sandals to change into afterwards. I had to do the walk in my normal boots but with walking socks on:(

We couldn't get close to the start, as the previous weekend, had been one of the last official Bluebell guided walks. We retraced out steps to the entrance of the parking area and walked down a long gritty path. Many deep, squealchy boggy areas needed negotiating but my normal boots held out even if they were very dirty by the end.

Herewith a few pictures:


Whilst they were just beginning to go over, their scent was still in the area, the sun finally came out and we really enjoyed our walk.

Been a while....

Since I posted on here but we are still repeating walks every week and if I have nothing new to show, am not updating:(

Last week, we had to change our walking day so ended up at Holme next the Sea with E's dog Bonny:
This was her waiting patiently (for about 2 minutes), whilst we got our act together. On the camera, I also found this photograph taken on a previous walk around Gayton Thorpe towards the old workhouse:
It made us smile!
