I’m on leave this week and this morning was crisp and sunny. So we decided to go to Norfolk for the day. Best decision I’ve made in ages. It was beautiful up there — and mostly deserted, except for the birds. We had lunch in the incomparable Titchwell Manor Hotel and then a long walk in a biting wind on Brancaster beach.
What’s wonderful about that part of the world is its vast and ever-changing skyscape. People are always sneering that Norfolk is flat. They’re wrong. Noel Coward (who first made that joke about the county) has a lot to answer for.
