Our walk this week took in a circular tour around Ringstead. Courtyard Farm over the years, have planted thousands of cowslips, which are now naturalising over one field as well as spilling out into adjoining ones:

We parked near where they store the 'duck tour' vehicles, standing in the chilly wind to drink coffee. We had E's dog with us so had decided on a beach walk so the dog could run and catch a ball.
Walking along the sand was freezing with a brisk onshore wind, and despite hats and gloves we were all cold, getting face and earache into the bargain. It took just about an hour to get to the outskirts of Heacham where we turned around to return.
Following a track back was much warmer as we were out of the wind. On our return and after a change of footwear, we drove into the central part of Hunstanton to have lunch at the revamped Wash and Tope.
DB and I hadn't been in it before so don't know whether it was improved or not. They do a 2 course pensioner lunch for £7.95. E and I had ham, egg, chips and peas, DB sausage, mash, peas and gravy. DB and myself had apple crumble and custard, E got half a portion of sticky toffee pudding with custard.
It was all just the right amount to fill us up without feeling stuffed. The peas were a little dry and the crumble topping way to sweet but us, but all in all, a nice meal.
