North Norfolk Railway

Thursday, February 27

The trains in north Norfolk are as a part of the place as the sea. The north Norfolk railway has also played a big part in my adventures here too, a friend of ours works on these trains and he speaks about them with as much passion as i do when someone mentions anything to do with horses. Because of this i've seen how hard these people work and just how covered in coal they are once they return from a hard and long days work. If you're ever in the North Norfolk area, i suggest you take a trip. The cabins are beautifully oldy worldy and every year they hold a beer festival so you can sit and drink all day on the train. It doesn't get much better. 

Norfolk Winter Sunshine

Wednesday, February 26

It's been said many and many a time that Norfolk is my spiritual home. It's the only place i have ever experienced feeling down and depressed after I've left, and purely because i'm not there anymore. I love this place, and as the days tick by to my big move, i knew i had to go back again. The very moment we left the main roads and the familiar roundabouts and turning appear i begin to feel like i'm home. I watch out the window and spot pieces of countryside, pubs and places that bring back memories in my head the moment i see them. Birthday lunches with friends, long trailing walks in the sunshine, beaches I've sat at for hours just to listen to the sea. 

On this day we awoke to the most glorious winter sunshine, sleepy headed and weary eyed we had breakfast of salmon, eggs and croissants before strolling to the car looking like a couple from the crew clothing advert, a blue shirt, jeans and boots for me. Pink shirt, jeans and hunters for him. We piled in the car and dropped the roof, drove to the station and parked to start our walk. Grizzle bounded along in front happy to be back in his favourite place too. 

We walked for miles. Out in the sunshine and open air the entire day, taking photos and remembering moments from summers gone by. All along the Weybourne station to Upper Sherringham, down to the coast and back to Weybourne via the beach. Once in Sherringham we stopped for fish and chips and played on the pebbles as we walked down to Weybourne. We talked about anything and everything that came into our minds and took time to get to know each other again. When we had done our round trip we retreated back for a cat nap and cup of tea before dinner. 

We went to bed that night with aching muscles and wine fuzzy heads, but in the best way possible. Hoping for great weather the next day so we could carry on our adventures.

A few weekend scenes

Wednesday, February 19

I should maybe have called this post Sunday scenes instead since it seemed to be the only day i got my camera out. I spent my valentines day at Edan Hall day spa, followed by a cinema date in the evening. I'm not really one for a massive Valentines celebration, i find it all a little forced and cliché so i opted out of the fancy meal and instead went  to see Leo do his thing in Wolf of Wall Street. Saturday was insanely windy and trying to ride in storms like that got incredibly tricky. Morris was having none of it and we spent most of the time going sideways and trying to stay away from anything that moved. 

This weekend i'm headed off to Norfolk so i did very grown up things to prepare for it. Checked my cars oil, cleaned her out, bought new oil when i realised i didn't have any left, you know, grown up things. I also did some slightly less grown up things, drove with the roof down and a million layers on, updated my ipod for the trip, dipped my feet in the lake with Grizzle to test how cold it was. 

I have a week of baking and packing ahead of me. Does anyone else get so excited for trips away that it takes you a week to organise everything? I can't wait to be back in Norfolk for a few days before i head off to Newmarket. It's going to be a good week.
