Half-Term in Norfolk

Thank you all SO much for your comments on my previous two posts!  I scheduled them before we went away for our half-term holiday, and having your lovely messages waiting for me when we got back softened the blow of returning to ‘real life’!

We spent the week in a caravan, in beautiful Norfolk, with my parents.  I think Norfolk is my VERY favourite part of the UK, and (as some of you know already) I LOVE caravans!!!  So, this was the perfect break for me.  

We were pretty lucky with the weather (a few really sunny days, and no rain), and spent the week relaxing and exploring the charming little towns and villages, stunning coastline, and superb eateries of North Norfolk.

Of course, I’ve prepared a little ‘show-and-tell’ of our trip for you.  Here we go.....

Our caravan was a 2-minute walk from the wonderful Wells beach, with its pine forests, dunes, beach huts, miles and miles of soft, soft sand, and big blue skies that go on forever and ever.

If you’ve been visiting me here for a while, you’ll know that, wherever we go on holiday, I always befriend some ducks.  This trip was no exception!  Yippeeee!!!  Our caravan was right next to a lake, so we had plenty of ducky visitors. 

Of course, I lured them in by offering a range of tasty artisan breads......  then announced that I thought they might like a bowl of water.  Simon and my dad said they thought I was crazy (the ducks had an enormous lake – why would they need a bowl of water!?!).  But my mom was in agreement with me, and we scoured the caravan cupboards until we found a Pyrex casserole dish – perfect!  And, did the ducks appreciate it???

Of course they did!  Look at Mrs Duck’s face – she’s clearly smiling!

Here are a few more photos from our wonderful week away.....

Sigh!!!  Why do holidays always pass by so quickly?!? 

Do you have any holidays planned for the summer?




  1. Looks like a lovely holiday and you were lucky with the weather. I love the purple flower photo - you should enlarge onto a canvas. No holidays for us this year as spent too much on building work boo but I will enjoy everyone else's photos xx

  2. Your photos are stunning Carly and I LOVED the pics of the ducks having a bath, very thoughtful of you!! I've only been to Norfolk once for a weekend, looking at your photos I must go back, and Mr B does like a steam train! XX

  3. Norfolk is so lovely, it looks like you had a wonderful time, we to have travelled on that little the rain ha ha we had our brollies up, it was still the high light of the day for the little people. I'm pleased you had fun.
    I think we are going to have a stay-cation and enjoy our new area.

  7. ...yeeha!!!yes in Wells.....i can't wait and now you've got me all over-excited seeing those pics...i recognise so many of these places and think north norfolk is my favourite and best place in the uk too! Thank you for sharing these pics.....counting down the days x

  8. The beach walk and huts look so familiar. So glad you had a lovely break and I love all the yellow in your post.

  9. I love that bit of Norfolk! My brother and I spent many a happy day running around the pine woods, pelting each other with cones. x

  10. such lovely family time and very clever ducks x

  11. Love the shot with the buttercups and the church!

    I can never decide which county I like best, Norfolk or Suffolk, but if pressed I'd have to say Suffolk by a whisker. Living in North Suffolk by the sea, and within easy reach of Norfolk, would be about the best place to be in the world I reckon.


Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit, and for taking the time to leave me a comment. It's always a pleasure to hear from readers, and it really makes my day!
