Scruff's Scribblings

Random Thoughts and other Flights of Fancy

Day 1 – Sunday 14th June 2009




Left home at 10.15am to catch the train to London Waterloo. Arrived in London on time and battled the Underground to Kings Cross where I was planning to get a burger for lunch. That plan was dashed when I could only find places to get healthy sandwiches! Decided on a cheese salad sandwich and a mug of tea and then made my way over to the train for the next part of the journey.


What was supposed to be a straightforward trip from Kings Cross to Kings Lynn was going to be broken up by a bus journey from Letchworth to Royston, due, of course, to weekend engineering works. Having got to Royston on time, we were a few minutes late leaving for Kings Lynn but the rest of the journey went smoothly. Tony and Maggie were a little late arriving in Kings Lynn so I wandered through to meet them in the High Street.


We left Kings Lynn and headed up the coast to Hunstanton. The sun was shining so we decided to walk along the prom after I had eaten a bacon bap and chips…. well the sandwich was ok but not filling enough for a main meal!

As we walked along the South Prom we watched as the Wash Monster returned to the beach. Apparently this amphibious vehicle takes people out to see seals. I just hope the shark face doesn’t scare them!

Having walked as far as the North Prom we decided to have an ice cream before walking back to the car. We then left Hunstanton and followed the road around the coast towards Cromer, briefly stopping at Moreston Quay to check the departure point for the seal trip we were planning to take later in the week. We carried on along the coast and after driving through Sheringham we thought it looked interesting enough to revisit.


We arrived at Poppy Cottage at about 7.30pm.
