A Sunny Week in Norfolk

Yes I've been away again! :) This time to spend a week with my parents in Norfolk. :)
We were very lucky with the weather and spent most days on the coast.
The first beach we visited was at Winterton-on-Sea
and we worked our way a long the coast throughout the week.
It was cloudy at times, but still warm.
Of course we had to have an ice-cream! :)
I love Ronaldo's ice-cream; mine was yummy Christmas Pudding.
Whilst in Sheringham we watched the steam train leave the station.
We spent one day walking by The Norfolk Broads.
Thurne Drainage Mill
Another day we went Geocaching with my parents.
Our walk took us by:-
steam trains,
along riverbanks
and through fields of cows with bulls!
We also went Geocaching with my best friend and her family.
No trip to Norfolk would be complete without a visit to Norwich.
Elm Hill
Norwich Castle
We had lunch at the cafe in The Assembly House.
"Poshing it up" to quote Jay!
On the way home we took a small detour to Grimes Graves and climbed 30 feet down a Neolithic mine shaft to view the tunnels created by the flint miners. I can remember visiting here when I was a little girl and going down the mine with my Dad.
The grassland is pockmarked with 400 mines that have been back-filled.
Sunset over farmland near my home village. I still think of Norfolk as my home, even though I left when I was 23 years old.
Now when can I plan my next visit?

It looks lovely, I had only ever been to Norfolk for the first time at the end of last year and loved it. I would really like to explore more as there is just so much to see and do. Gorgeous photos xxxx
