Norfolk Coast


Kings Lynn was the start of this day… Grey, wet, -1°, freezing – brrrr…

Everything in fog

Just perfect (to stay in a warm cafe and sip a cappuccino)…

Looks a bit like Riga as well Zwinkerndes Smiley

Old harbour areas (Kings Lynn used to be 2nd largest port in the 15th century – not validated… Zwinkerndes Smiley)

frozen water

Yet some species like the humidity Smiley

When you step through the main gates there is another world in the backyards

Everything is old

more backyards…

Then following the Norfolk coastline to Castle Rising – you cannot get more English Zwinkerndes Smiley

Very proper, very organized

Spring seems to be there – yet still a bit suspended at the moment

Again there are always benefactors…

What a nice entrance

A mix of various styles and epochs is present in the church

Regardless – it was very peaceful

Soon afterwards was some marshland where tidal flooding is common which seems to please the birds

The whole area can be waterlogged when the tide is coming

A channel for tidal water

reeds

closer…

lunch was taken in an old inn which used to be very stylish Smiley

The inner was really nice and cosy – especially with the weather outside

DSC_3757

Looks like a decent start

Shepherd’s pie – this time with a real bread crust; not the typical fatty substance around the inner part. Delicious… Smiley

From here on the day started to descent – somehow the whole area is too cultivated; no “real” nature anymore, just farmland… Quite interesting, yet after the 10th village with brown brick houses it looses some appeal Zwinkerndes Smiley
