Did you notice? Just for a moment there, we managed to escape. The beautiful boy had a delightful weekend at Hotel Grandma and we went for a walk in the woods. Along the boardwalk,
to the windswept beauty that is Holkham beach.
It was so windy I could hardly hold the camera steady. And cold, it was very, very cold. A strong North Easterly always has an impact on Norfolk's coast.
We have been visiting our favourite bolt holes at the coast for nearly 20 years together now. We don't get there so often as we'd like, and of course usually we visit with the beautiful boy. But once a year we try to find a weekend to get away on our own, walking, bird-watching, reading the Sunday papers, eating superb meals at Byfords, The George or The White Horse. And maybe even drinking a bit more than our hectic schedules usually allow - more brisk walks to recover from that unfamiliar hangover feeling!
The Deerpark was beautiful on this crisp, cold Autumn morning.
Of course there was a bit of shopping. Around all of our favourite Antiques sellers and of course Big Blue Sky - does anyone visit North Norfolk without shopping this amazing store?
Those amazing signs are by Andy Povey - take a look!
And just a little thrifting, but not too much, hubby needed to enjoy the weekend too!
Back into the fray this week and no idea where time is going. More soon. t.x
