Last Friday we back in Cambridgeshire, East Anglia visiting Charlie’s parents. I took a pile of travel magazines with me as it was going to be a pretty rainy weekend, but the Saturday turned out warm and sunny. After a quick look at the map, we all hit the road along the coast and popped into a few delightful places in Norfolk; a couple of sandy beaches, lavender farm and my favorite place in East Anglia so far, Wells-Next-The-Sea.
After the enjoyable drive past Hunstanton, we found the Brancaster beach at low tide, peaceful, welcoming and so British, lined up with uniformed windbreaks. It’s such a great place for building sand castles, enjoying power kiting or just having a stroll.
It was quite windy, but so relaxing to listen to the wind whistling in my ears and watching the sand being scattered across the beach.
Spot the SS Vina shipwreck in the distance which accidentally sank in 1944. It seemed closer than it really was.
After a little stroll along the beach, we headed back to the car and had another scenic drive towards Brancaster Staithe.
