The next day it was raining, we did visit a couple of villages in the afternoon, but the highlight of the day was the sunset.
We have lovely sunsets in the West Midlands, but they are not as easy to photograph with tall trees and buildings in the way.
The following day our last, was fine but cloudy, we
decided to visit Sheringham, a pretty seaside town and railway station.
The station retains an old world charm, the area has an annual
forties weekend, where people can revel in nostalgia.
Many of the features are maintained all year round, some are a little more modern.
I asked the Stationmaster for a photo, he kindly agreed, looking very smart.
The shops support the 40’s feel, this image of an ironmongers shopfront.
With ice cream parlours, amusement arcades and gift shops,
the town reminded me of holidays as a child, although not in the Forties.
We walked on the sandy beach, watching the gulls. Living near to the Mediterranean for so many years, it’s easy to forget the tidal movement of the sea.
