The Norfolk Coast

Part two of our staycation was at Happisburgh last weekend, where we went for the joint 60th of two old friends, so to speak. (well they’re only 60!). On the way there we called in at Holt for the excellent second-hand bookshop in Fish Hill

We also called in at Felbrigg Hall briefly, to use their facilities – I always enjoy seeing the cropped trees in parkland

Norfolk has such wonderful skies – especially near the sea

I got up early and took my own photograph

There is trouble with coastal erosion at Happisburgh and the greenheart sea defences are crumbling in the face of the North Sea

We had a great party with two live bands

A bonfire

And barbecue

It was a chance to try out our new (to us) 1985 vintage de Waard tent

And to wish that hops grew in the hedgerows where we live
