From sticks of rock to a regal splendour!
Gary and I had wanted to visit the county Norfolk for a few years now and more often than not we jump in the car and head across to mainland Europe. However, on this occasion, we decided ‘no’, let’s dig deeper into our own lovely country.
All quiet on the Cromer pier
Norfolk is situated on the east coast of England and shares its shoreline with the North Sea. For me whenever I hear the North Sea mentioned, it conjures up harsh conditions in my mind, so it was a welcoming site to see the waters on calmer days.

Although this was our first visit to Great Yarmouth it brought back so many childhood memories of spending days by the seaside with my family. A true bucket & spade destination, and even has the nostalgic end of pier entertainment.
The Britannia Pier, Great Yarmouth
During our coastal tour we visited Wells-Next-the-Sea, a busy little fishing town. Great for seafood and you may even catch a glimpse of people crabbing, or buy your own line and bait and give it a go yourselves.

If you're intrigued by Norfolk, a UK county with an interesting past, then why not check out "The Little Book of Norfolk". Full of facts and obscure information. It's a fun read on the region.
You can pick it up for your Kindle or in good old hardcover. (Depending on region)
Well you just couldn’t visit Cromer and not try the infamous Cromer Crab, could you?
