A Norfolk Easter

There’s probably nowhere I’d rather be than at our house in Norfolk for the Easter weekend. As I said in my last post, it is a real retreat and just so much more relaxing than being at home for some reason.

Wells beach

Here are some of the highlights of the past few days –

  • Introducing Honey to the beach – she had a great run around and got very wet and sandy.
  • Doing a couple of our favourite walks – the six mile one from Brancaster, up over the common then back along the coastal path and the four mile Holkham-Wells-Holkham one – in the beautiful sunshine.
  • Meeting our friends, the Woodwards, completely by chance, whilst walking along the coastal path, and then going for a drink and snack with them at The Ship in Brancaster.

Beach Huts

  • A morning playing board games as a family.
  • Seeing six seals playing and showing off during one of our beach walks.
  • Talking about our planned summer holiday to Grenada for the whole of our four mile walk!


  • Trying out a new recipe on Easter Sunday – orange glazed chicken, with orzo salad and asparagus.
  • Homemade pizzas on Easter Monday, all choosing our own selection of toppings.

Brancaster beach

  • Going out for a meal as a family.
  • The fabulous weather – some of the mornings have been a little grey but the afternoons have been pretty glorious!


Back home tomorrow, as it’s nearly time to get B ready for his exciting school trip!
