Our Norfolk holiday




























(All iphone pictures)

Last week, the girls and i went to Norfolk with my aunty, uncle and cousin. We stayed at Wells next the sea in a lovely house by the harbour. Norfolk is such a beautiful place. It is full of golden and wild flower fields. I found so many wonderful places to take photographs and there were many meadows and farmers fields that we just couldn't get into that i wish we could have. I wanted to share some on my iphone snaps with you all as i still have so many digital images to look through! The girls had a great time. We went to Dinosaur world, the arcades, the beach, pensthorpe wildlife gardens and on little adventures for photographs. On Friday, we went to the wildlife reserve and gardens and i spied some heather fields in the distance that i was desperate to get to. I resounded myself to the fact that i wouldn't find any and then on the way home, i saw a purple field in the distance and took a little detour to try and find it. I managed to find it and came across the most wonderful nature reserve with a heather field that ponies roamed around. We were in heaven and i didn't want to leave! I am seriously thinking about driving the two hours next week to go back for a photoshoot of the girls in the meadow.

My favourite day is when the girls and i went on a little trip to my favourite beach, Holkham, which was the next beach around along the pine trees. It was one of those mornings where you just feel such peace and happiness. The girls explored the pine woods first and found a teepee that they played in. It was high tide, so as we got down onto the sand, the water was so close and formed channels and streams up to the main beach. I love Holkham beach because it is covered in sea lavender and the girls loved paddling amongst it and finding "sea treasure". We went walked back through the woods and picked some blackberries on the other side. The weather wasn't that great last week. It was extremely windy and we had spots of rain most days, but when the sun did shine, it was warm and lovely and we got out and just had a wonderful adventure. It is great to be with my husband now though. He couldn't come due to work but he has this week off to spend time with us and we have lovely days planned! I am excited to look at the rest of my digital images and share them with you during the week.

  2. We were there a few weeks ago! I LOVE Wells and the surrounding area. (Would move there like a shot given half a chance...) Have you discovered the wonderful "Stiffkey Stores" in the next village along? We stayed near it and visited each morning for coffee!

  18. I bought a photography magazine and it said about location and height (amongst many things) and I did think of your photos. I love how the scene always feels so amazing. Looks like a lot of fun too.
