We love Norfolk it is a wonderfully diverse county with plenty to do for all, so I was more than please when time for our Autumn break there came around. We spent many holidays at West Runton at a caravan site called Ingleborough Fields when our children were small and thought we would like to revisit and see how it had changed. Well thankfully the toilet block had been refurbished LOL, but apart from that everything seemed to be as nature intended, a quiet woodland site next to a golf course and about 5 minutes walk into the vilage.
Our first trip out was to Holkham thinking that we would visit the Hall, but when we got to the park it was so beautiful we spent the whole time walking around and enjoying the Fallow Deer who had just started the Rut .
And this little fellow thought he would keep out of their way for a bit.
I always love to go and see the seals on the beach when we visit Norfolk, we were a bit early for all the usual mating rituals (unlike the deer) The beach we go to requires a 40 min walk and it was blowing a gale so when we reached the beach we were well and truly sand blasted, well you pay good money at a beauty salon to have the top layer of skin peeled away!
We were told by the locals that the seals had not arrived yet but when we got there we saw a couple cavorting in the shallow surf, when I set up the camera at the waters edge I am sure they were performing just for me and gave me a great show.
We retired to the sand dunes to eat our cheese french bread and drink the red wine, the Gray Nomads know how to live it up!
The village of Sherringham is well known for ‘The Poppy Line’ a fully functioning steam railway.
Trains run frequently during the Summer and as it was half term there were plenty of visitors. It take about 2 hours to go to Holt and back stopping half way to refill the boiler with water. All run by voulenteers, all very efficient would not let you on the train unless they saw your ticket no matter that they had just sold it to you 5 minutes before.
Any way lovely countryside along the coast and through the woodlands in the beautiful Autumn colurs.
End of October and the Motor home is put into storage for the winter, but fear not we shall find plenty to do in the coming months, watch out for our trip to Bushey Park and the Rut in full swing!
Thanks for stopping by
