We’ve had another great day exploring North Norfolk, made all the better by the fact the predicted rain has only ever dumped on us overnight, then promptly buggered off by morning! Today we revisited some places we’d previously checked out and decided they warranted further exploration – as well as finding new gems. Our first stop was at Walsingham which is a lovely little village that boasts the remains of an Austinian monastery but that’s still an important pilgrimage site for Christians. Moving on we headed for Holt, an upmarket market town whose surrounding wealth is reflected in the quality of its shops. Such a small town that boasts two ‘Joules’ clothing shops (one purely for children) can hardly be called poor.

Next we checked out the beach at nearby Salthouses. There’s not a lot there apart from the shingle beach but it’s provided the picture of the day. As soon we arrived, I spotted this chap relaxing and clearly enjoying his own company.


Making our way back from Salthouses we made our final stop in Cromer where we stocked up on some superb seafood from the local fishmongers before visiting the excellent Red Lion pub (pictures in another blog) for a beer before home.

Tomorrow’s our final day in Norfolk before heading home which is going to be a bit of a wrench as we’ve all thoroughly enjoyed it, yet there’s so much more to see…

I’ve a small favour to ask…
If you enjoy reading this or any of the other blogs I’ve written, please click on an advert or two. You don’t have to buy anything you don’t want to of course – although if you did find something that tickled your fancy that would be fab! – but the revenue from them helps me to cover some of the cost of maintaining this site (which isn’t cheap and comes out of my own pocket). Remember, 99% of the pictures used in my blogs can be purchased as prints from my other website –  https://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/
