At the end of our week in Norfolk we visited Grimes Graves and went down a Neolithic Flint Mine.
Here are my photos for August:-
1. A Fountain
2. A Boat
A trip down memory lane; this is the Norfolk White Boat that I used to sail on when I was younger (with an ex-boyfriend!) We saw it whilst we were out walking.
I had to cheat here. During August we went to Norfolk - no mountains there! :) So this is a photo that I took last month whilst we were on holiday in Turkey.
4. Street Food
Do ice-creams count as street food? My son playing with his food!! :)
6. Market Day
Norwich Market is a permanent market. There has been a market in Norwich since Saxon times and this market site is older than any of the surrounding buildings. I can remember this flower stall being here when I was a child.
7. A Festival or Funfair
Last weekend it was The Reading Festival. I snapped these festival-goers whilst we were out for a walk beside the River Thames. I'm glad that I wasn't joining them as they had typical festival weather over the weekend - torrential rain!
9. Something Bizarre
Someone's private garden on the Norfolk coast.
Some of the sculptures were quite bizarre (I didn't like the head behind bars in the garden wall), but the overall effect of the garden was amazing.
I have just bought 7 metres of this gorgeous material from Laura Ashley. We are planning to redecorate our bedroom and I will be making this fabric into curtains.
11. A Sport
As a family we aren't really into sports, but we do like walking and cycling.
Here is a photo of my Mum, looking rather sporty with her hiking poles and map. I love this photo; my Mum doesn't like having her photo taken and this is a good shot of her laughing at me.
12. Something Ancient
and just for a laugh ...
13. A Norfolk Mountain
Beeston Bump - 207 feet above sea level!
Beeston Bump is the remaining one of two hills that were created during the last ice age.
