Royal Wedding Weekend

Julia and I took the opportunity to spend three nights in Norfolk and visit some of my cousins. We went up on the Friday and saw Peter and Nena who live in Hoxne. Despite some health problems they were both in good form. We had lunch in a nearby pub and then went back to the their house where we had a good natter.  We stayed at an excellent, click here for a link,  B&B in Ormesby St Margaret which is near the coast at Scratby.
Saturday we planned to drive up the coast to Cromer, but we got hijacked by a windmill at Horsey and then walked a mile or so to the beach to see the seals.

We also saw a fine looking bull

This took most of the day so we went back to change and saw my cousins Tony, Barbara and Gina with whom we had dinner. An excellent day.

Sunday we went to Sheringham and Cromer and on Monday had a leisurely drive home stopping off at a couple of place with lunch at Aldeburgh. All in all a great weekend. We must do this more often as we realised that we hadn't seen the family for a few years. In Cromer we saw a great art gallery run by George Debenham who does oils and photos, to see the work click here and also here.

Despite the sun it was a "bit bracing" due to the strong (gale force??) winds
