We went on an expedition to discover the Norfolk Broads.
First stop was Horning, on the river, with an impromptu - and very detailed - tour of an old wherry. Fascinating to think of lives long ago and the joys and hardships of river life.

|Love the Norfolk Tudor architecture!|

Rural Norfolk yielded a gated level-crossing, where we had to phone for permission to cross and an idyllic lawn by the river, with ducks and geese and canoes and rowing boats and... a veritable Ratty heaven.
Add in a cream tea and good company - a real Day Out...
And I am officially In Love with Norfolk In The Summer. Paradise.
