Look at that, could be Cambridge if you didn’t know any better. But here we are in the old section of Kings Lynn. We took a walk along the water front where cafés and pubs are starting to spring up. Then, just a road or two inland, we have these:
Amazing old places aren’t they? We were surprised it wasn’t more bustling.
We did stop here however for a drink and it was very peaceful. Good cider and beer.
But give it time. With plans for more frequent trains to London and Cambridge, Kings Lynn could once more become trendy. Then we will all wish we had bought this place on the water for a mere pittance. But it’s not too late now! Anyone?
The place on the left: £200k
Well, June 21st is an exciting day for us, but for different reasons. For me and my sun-worshipping, it is the day with the most daylight hours. For Marek, who loves all things wintery and bleak, it marks a turning point to when the days become shorter. Whatever the reason, we both found it a day to celebrate. And what better way than to experience the sunset on a hike.
We took the last Coast Hopper bus from Blakeney to Sheringham, and there had the best fish and chips on the coast at Straights, followed by a visit to Ronaldo’s of Norwich ice cream shop (monster cookie and chocolate hazelnut, if you were wondering).
At 7pm we set out along the golf course and walked the coast path back home. Here are some highlights.

We love a good BBQ, and last night was steak night. Arthur Howell steak from Binham “meat and gun shop”, and the sunset were a perfect match. (With a bottle of the new house white from the Cley Deli!)
