Friday 7th April


Just like yesterday, but today we turned right instead or left. We hugged the coast eastward as far as the Norfolk Broads. The “Q” factor deteriorates around Eccles, with an immediate improvement as we approach Horsey – we’ve hit “The Broads.” 

At Horsey we stumbled on the Nelson Head pub for lunch – yet more excellent food and beer! 

Wind Farm Jolly Mollie saw some “Beastly ugly windmills” at West Somerton. (“Turbines please Jolly”)  Any sensible discussion about alternative energy and the impact on the environment would involve sentences with clauses, and some logical reasoning. But we agreed it was OK to differ on some things! She likes pink cottages too. (The wind farm has a 1MW capacity.)

Today’s new word is Staithe meaning jetty. We saw this word frequently on Norfolk road signs.

Little BarninghamWickmere I revisit the churches encountered earlier this week with camera – now in sunshine! Definitely Sunny 16!

That evening I stump up £2.10 and drop in on the Splash (indoor swimming pool) at Sheringham. Punching a large floating ball with some kids is simple fun – none of the structured “fun” of scrabble. 

A final meal at the Wheat Sheaf at West Beckham. Wherry bitter. Yum!

Get back so Jolly Mollie can pack. Doh!
