Norfolk Coastline.. a walk..

Today, Pete and I with Pete's colleague Trev, headed off at the crack of dawn for Norfolk. Pete had researched a new walking route and our first task on arrival was to have a very welcome breakfast in Burnham Deepdale. We'd visited this cafe before with friends... and today - well the Full English called ;)

We started out along the coastal path; the side was far out which meant - so were the birds.

Oystercatchers, Curlews, Grey Plovers, Brent Geese, Greylags, Canadian Geese, Redshank, Dunlin, Godwit, Ringed Plover, Lapwing, Little Egret, Turnstone and Red Breasted Merganser (very pleased to see about 4 of them) seen today.

Whoever suggested English beaches were crowded??

The lads ;)
and the church at Brancaster

We had soup for lunch here..

and for those who remember these... an old AA (breakdown service) booth; many years ago if you broke down you hoped it was near one of these. You had been provided with a key by the AA (Automobile Association) which enabled you to unlock the door and ring for help - bit different these days.

A really good day with plenty of very welcome exercise in good company - and the breakfast I can thoroughly recommend :)

Another Grand Day out Tricia.
I still have my AA key though I did eventually take it off my keyring.

Lovely photos Tricia - sounds like a wonderful walk.
AA box brings back memories - was it the AA or RAC where the people who came to the rescue on motorbikes used to salute you if your car had the relevant badge on it?!

Thanks John - it was a good day out. My mother's still got her original AA badge and had been a member for 57 years!!

RR - It was the AA... Mum still makes reference to it now and regrets "those days" ;)
