Bluebell the motorhome is parked up once again on her lonesome, this time we are tucked up behind Flint House Caravan Club Certified Location, Walcott, Norfolk and we are just metres from the sea. At just £13 pn we’ve got hard standing, water, electric, loo emptying, and the owners even have to arial leads ready for you to plug into their arial if needs be. What a bargain. The only downside is, due to a narrow and windy access drive, caravans aren’t allowed, it’s open for 3 motorhomes only.
We arrived yesterday afternoon (Tuesday) after a short drive from our Britstop location with an excursion to nearby Horsey WindPump, owned by the National Trust. Sadly for us, it’s currently under a major refurbishment so the sails were dismantled and the site was more like a building site, however I’m sure later in the year it will be looking as good as its former glory.
From Horsey WindPump, we were hoping to do a 3.5 mile cIrcular AA walk from the WindPump to Horsey Broad , but the path was closed due to flooding damage, so instead we headed on a permissive footpath following flocks of people towards the beach. On arriving at the beach, it was obvious why so many people…. Seals! And loads of them, all having a little sunbathe. What a remarkable sight!
Our journey to Walcott was only 9miles and seeing as the light was so nice we decided to pull in for another drone play at Happisburgh Lighthouse although it was quite windy so didn’t take it too high.
We settled in for a quiet night, waved at Major Tim as he flew over us in the ISS, and were lulled to sleep by the crashing of waves below us. Perfect.
About 06:30 I became aware of a golden glow through the air vent, and gingerly poked my head through the curtain. I was rewarded by my early morning with a gorgeous sunrise.
We wandered around Happisburgh, enjoying more views of the picture perfect lighthouse, and carried in a little further beyond Happisburgh towards Sea Palling before returning to Happisburgh on the beach.
When we got back to Bluebell we were shattered! Keith looked on his memory map and discovered we had walked 7 miles! We had a nap, before I cooked dinner, which was, even if I do say so myself, gorgeous!
Ca Kho To, which is a cod based curry. I signed up to Simply Cook recently and this was one of their recipes. Will write more about them another time
Until next time
