LighthousesCromer & Happisburgh
RidersJane & Me

After another guilt free big breakfast we headed straight for the coast and on to Happisburgh which is actually pronounced Haze-borough!!! Why oh why? If it was Grimburgh, I could understand. Anyway its a place with a very happy looking red and white striped lighthouse along with half a Time & Tides Bell. Its part of a nationwide arts project, have a look, its fab.

By the time we hit Cromer the sun was high and the sea was calling so it was time for a dip. This is an old school seaside town that is still doing the simple things well. We liked it.

Sheringham next, then a change of landscape. The long simple beaches gave way to creeks and marshes. We found a beautiful track and threaded our way through this complex landscape. Blimey it was perfect. After the peace of Cley Marshes, Wells Next the Sea was jammed! We headed out along the estuary and into the pine forests, Holkham Hall then a blat onto Burnham to The Hero Pub! The first pint disappeared in seconds.
