Norfolk Coast Visit

Posted by Caz on Wednesday, 31st July 2013

On my way home from Blackpool, I had arranged to stay for a couple of nights in north Norfolk so I could have a look around. I met up with local photographer @markescapes for a morning photowalk in Happisburgh.

After parting, I then enjoyed the afternoon and evening exploring Cromer. The weather was kind and I was pleased with the images I made.

The next day dawned rather grey and blustery and only got worse, the drizzle set in while I had a walk around Sheringham, so I didn’t stay much beyond mid-afternoon but decided to return home. It was still an enjoyable trip.

The New Trams Are Dull!

The New Trams Are Dull!

Last weekend I was back in Blackpool for BarCamp Blackpool 2013. I had not been to the 2012 event so my last visit was in October 2011. I met up with Alistair who had travelled over from Newcastle and when we weren’t BarCamping we indulged in a bit of geocaching, as usual.

Our biggest disappointment was that they’ve got rid of most of their lovely old trams and now have new, fast, sleek ones prowling up and down the prom. Efficient? Yes. Full of character? No! What a shame that progress sweeps aside the heritage of bygone days. 🙁

Even though the Illuminations Season doesn’t start until the Autumn evenings draw in, there were still plenty of preparations happening for the displays.

Alistair met up with a friend from childhood – none other than Basil Brush – BOOM! BOOM!

And we might have indulged in a huge milkshake at the café in Stanley Park during a particularly thirsty caching trip!

We also had a long walk around Fleetwood, the first time we had been that far north on the Peninsula, which had plenty of sand and unexpected sunshine!

Rambles In Fleetwood

Sunday was grey and blustery but the forecast was for better things. So Alistair and I headed to Fleetwood for a walk to find some tupperware. It turned out to be quite warm and sunny so we enjoyed the stroll.

The long stretches of sand provided ample opportunity for a bit of Beachcombing, both by us and the Cybermen! Here are the rest of the images from the day:
