In September, which feels so long ago – and yet, in this year, also not long ago – we went to one of our happy places. For a week, at the end of the month, we camped under the Norfolk skies. It was a week of all kinds of weather, including gale force wind and rain at the end – the boy wasn’t too happy by that point, as it included a tent that kept collapsing. Nevertheless, it was a much needed week in the great outdoors, with long walks that I’m still missing now, especially with the days being shorter.
On one of the days, we drove to the North Norfolk coast, specifically to go to one of my favourite beaches – Holkham Bay – but we stopped at Cley next the Sea as well. It was one of those quaint, picturesque English villages, complete with a Women’s Institute. Walking through the village, there were a number of shops, including a secondhand bookshop. It was nice to explore somewhere new to us, before heading off to the beautiful expanse of Holkham.
Grateful to have had the chance to get away safely for a while.
Sending you all love and virtual hugs.
