Welcome to emitt1 via here and Tree Hedgewytch via Bloglovin.

DS and Little Miss M have popped over for a day or so. Off to Old Hunstanton this morning to let us all have some sea air. The sky was a lovely blue, deeper than of late, with just a few wisps of clouds.

Herewith the photographs, not too many as despite it being sunny, the wind was bitingly cold: 
Miss M trying hard not to fully sit on the cold sand!
A couple getting ready for kite/beach? surfing
Father and son plus their little shadow who spent the first 10 minutes or so, once I had taken photographs, encircling us, presumably keeping us all together:
Other than the sea which was quite a way out, we finally found a deep area of water for M. to swim in. She looks like she is standing but her legs are working furiously under the water:
Just as we neared the lifeboat station, we heard the hovercraft start up. Thinking there was a 'shout' we hurried to have a look but they were just testing it.
Miss M with fleece and towel on, drying out after having her legs hosed down outside.

Heating went on, as did soup and the kettle. Within 20 minutes we were warmer and settling down to some Celery and White Stilton soup, bread and crackers. DS has gone off to a country shop warehouse place, M. is asleep in her basket which has been dragged in front of the lit wood burner and we are settling down for the afternoon.

  1. Lovely photos, but it does look cold - Miss M was very brave going in the water!

  2. Where do you recommend to park at Old Huntsanton? On Christmas Eve we went in LeStrange Hotel car park and we felt obliged to have a coffee! Is there a route you would recommend for pushchairs - we liked the dunes and things and like you the beach but it was hard work! Thanks

    1. On the road just past the top of the lane leading down to the beach cafe. Single yellow lines seem to only be in effect April to September. No easy way down, if you want easy access you need to the beach you need to be at promenade end, of Hunstanton.

  4. Brrr! Just looking at that water makes me shiver! Nothing nicer than being out and about and then hunkering down in the warm x
