A very Blakeney Christmas tree 🎄 

Every year some wonderful soul puts up a tiny Christmas tree, complete with baubles blowing around in the wind, on this old rowing boat by the bridge. We can see its little lights blinking at night from the top of Mariners Hill.

A crisp, frosty walk on the Norfolk coast path at sunrise

One of the joys of winter in Blakeney is to wake up early and find the coast path hard and crispy underfoot with frost and ice. This was taken on a walk from Blakeney to Morston and back, when the sun was just beginning to make its presence felt above the silhouette of Blakeney church.

A Christmas trip to the Norfolk Bear Rehoming Centre at Pedlars Barrow in West Runton

Pedlars Barrow at West Runton hosts Norfolk’s Bear Rehoming Centre. Chester, our dog’s beloved bear, came from here a few years ago. This time we were looking for a special bear to give us a Christmas present…we found one called William, who will be going to a very good home! Take a look at the original Instagram post for more photos of Pedlars Barrow and its wonderful selection of toys and bears – a must visit if you’re shopping for children this Christmas…or not!
