Another Holkham walk!

Another Holkham walk!

Two weeks after our visit to Holkham we returned to walk along the beach to Burnham. Did we ever say what a favourite spot Holkham is for Team GB?? What started out as quite a cool breeze soon developed into warm sunshine as we headed west along the beach. This probably going to sound like quite a boring post as we just walked along the beach watching horses ride past and picking out shells. As we started getting good weather it was just great...

Easter at Holkham

James & Kate, Rabbart, Bygones, Walled Garden, Hall, Playground, Chinese and video games.

There was plenty of fog about as well as we headed down to the quay and embark on one of three boats owned by Beans Boat trips.  Team GB took up seats on the...

To Holkham and back…

We decided to drive up to Holkham and walk to Wells along the beach retracing a walk Reenie and I had done some time ago. We were prepared for the weather because despite it being sunny there was a forecast of rain. To ensure we were amply refreshed we packed a small picnic to munch on. On arriving at Holkham it seemed like there were a few people sharing the same idea with the car park a hive of activity. We soon headed out across the sand...
