Our Week on the North Norfolk Coast
A few weeks ago we ran away from January and spent some time on the North Norfolk coast. We stopped in a converted coastguard hut on the top of a cliff in Mundesley (thanks to a lucky prize draw win with Rose and Grey Interiors and HolidayCottages.co.uk) and had a whole week of sea views, lonesome beach adventures and approximately 11 billion portions of chip-shop chips.
Some of our highlights:
The sinking sun on Snettisham Beach.
The near-empty coastline of Mundesley.
A muddy and entertaining (because we couldn't figure out which way the wayfinding signs were supposed to be pointing) amble through Bacton Woods.
A handful of seals at Horsey Gap.
The circular walk from Blakeney through Cley-next-the-Sea.
The beach huts at Wells-next-the-Sea.
A very misty and moody Holkham Estate.
Golden hour on the last morning in our temporary home.
And endless dunes and falling rocks on the beach in Old Hunstanton to round-up our week.
Even if you live by the sea we don't think it's possible to tire of hearing it lap and lick at the beach, much in the same way that we never bore of the vista that welcomes our turn around Surprise view or the way the hills seem to engulf us as we negotiate our Polo up Winnats Pass (we'll share those soon - it's a Peak District thing!)
The best thing about nature is that it's never boring. It never stops moving/changing and it's always offering us something different and for that we are very thankful. Also, we will now always enter ourselves into prize draws.
