Sheringham, Norfolk

With the wind howling outside and the rain lashing against the windows it is nice to return to October when we had some great sunny weather.

We are wandering around the seaside town of Sheringham on the North Norfolk coast where the North Sea meets The Wash

Random photos as we wander around

We have walked to the front in search of lunch

We settle for The Two Lifeboats which was originally a coffee shop and fisherman'a mission circa 1720

after which we continue walking along the front and back around the town

I so love these murals, they are so lifelike 

depicting life in times gone by

Having finished wandering around the town we are wandering  along the front, again visiting museums and the like.

This is our last day but I have lots of photos of our time in Wymondham on our way home.

Thanks for this seaside ramble, Barbara. Memories of sunshine are wonderful things in the midst of the grey and wet winter. I enjoyed seeing the murals - there's a town here on Vancouver Island that has many of them. The cosmos were a lovely, bright tangle of colour! Happy Sunday.

I enjoyed enlarging all of the photos for a closer look at this pretty town. The pebble house and the row of white houses are so different from anything over here. I'd like to visit The Treasure Chest, and perhaps wander into the church I can see at the end of the street. What a lovely day you must have had!

I love youyr photo essays! Have you read any of Elly Griffith's mysteries featuring an archaeologist named Ruth? They are really a love letter to Norfolk, as Ruth lives by the sea, and has most of her adventures there. xoxox

This looks like a lovely town. It is a place that I have never been so I have really enjoyed your photos and the virtual journey :-)

Thank you Barbara. It was fun to flip through these photos in large format and it felt almost as though I were there in person. It was a lovely day when you were there and I notice plenty of others also enjoying a stroll through the town.

Very interesting walls made of round pebbles and rocks. I like the beachhouses? Are they places for changing into swimwear? Not sure, but they are colorful and cute. You said nothing about your lunch. Should I take that as a sign? =D

That was a great ramble with some lovely photos. Beautiful beach huts!

I could live there in a heart beat. What a cute place, and Cosmos grow
in England. I plant them every spring. That word seems so far away.
We are having a wicked storm rain and sleet. Be well I love your posts.

Had to come back for this village. I have never seen a rock wall like that. \
Lobsters there too. Do they steam them? Like the ole Murals.
Watching Downton Abby.

Such a pretty seaside town Barbara and lots to see.
The old stone house is lovely and I would like to have Popped into 'Creativity at Home' I wonder if you had a nosey!
The murals of times past add interest to the wall!
I imagine the museums held plenty of history within their walls.
That coast looks interesting too, it's a part of England I've not seen .
