When the hustle and bustle of London life is grinding you down, there’s nothing like wild open spaces to refresh and refocus. This weekend myself and two old friends escaped to a tiny village on the Norfolk coast for the weekend – it was the first time I’d visited the county (it’s a long way from my native Westcountry) and was blown away by how lovely it was.
And I’ve never seen snow on a beach before either!
We walked from the cottage to The Lifeboat Inn for lunch (smoked haddock risotto by the roaring fire – yum!) along the coastpath covered in snow and edged with iced dune grass.
That’s the Christmas card sorted!
Striped landscape of dunes, snow, sand and sea.
The ice-crystal-laced seaweed along the frozen tideline was so beautiful in the warm afternoon sun.
I loved how graphic the wooden sea defences looked zig-zagging through the snow as far as the eye could see.
On the walk back an eerie frozen fog descended and my hair actually froze… a very strange sensation I can tell you!
