Homeward Bound|Norfolk Day Four

A short and sweet post to finish the adventure.

We packed up the car, said goodbye to the lovely Gillie Cottage before heading off back to London.

We decided to make a pit stop at Oxburgh Hall to break the journey and it happened to be National Apple Day.

Second Exit on the Motorway and Straight on till Blakeney|Norfolk Day One

Norfolk has been a family tradition since I can remember and although I’m sure some people couldn’t bear to visit the same place year after year it’s like reuniting with an old friend from my family and I; so we packed up the car and mum and I headed out of the hustle and bustle of London with Blakeney in mind.

Sadly our week long holiday was cut short due to one of us being sick – don’t worry it wasn’t me so this is the last holiday post, make sure you’ve read day 1 and 2.

After leaving these 2 critters in charge of our invalid, mum and I set off for a walk.

Which was a complete failure due to it pouring with rain!

Luckily my mum has friends nearby so they popped over for tea and cake whilst we waited for the rain to stop. Just look at the carrot cake-not home made but from Cook!

When the rain had finally stopped and just before we left to travel back to London I went for a little walk on my own just to take a few snaps.

Although it was sad that we had to leave early we have plans to go back in January with the promise of snuggly fires and toasted marshmallows.

However my little adventure didn’t stop just there the vacation became a stay-cation so check back tomorrow for the nest instalment.

My mum and I started the next morning off with a good long walk from Blakney to Morston Quay. The sun was shining but there was still a good country breeze! I’m not going to lie I felt a little like Dorothy skipping along the yellow brick road!

The highlight of the walk is tea and a bacon sandwich at the end.

After a spot of lunch we jumped in the car and went off to Burnham Market-where Mr Stephen Fry lives for a spot of shopping. Burnham is a gorgeous little village with some popular shops including Jack Wills and Joules as well as a perfect second hand bookshop and a cute gift shop called Norfolk Living definitely worth a visit.

We stumbled upon these crazy scarecrows in the town of Stiffkey!

Back home after spending our hard earned pennies it was my turn to cook dinner. I am pretty much a one trick pony in the kitchen so whipped up my hunters pie which always goes down a treat. If you are interested in the recipe let me know and i’ll pop a little recipe post up for you.

Check back tomorrow for another day.
