Gale Force Winds

We woke this morning to black skies and gale force winds.


We’d decided to go to Wroxham as Simon needed a puncture repair kit for his bike.  After asking in a bike shop we went to Roys DIY where he found just what he wanted.  After a quick top-up of food I had the brainwave of having a McDonalds lunch (well we are on holiday!) and so we sat in the car to eat it and it was yummy!


Our next stop was the car park by Wroxham Broad which Simon had only seen from the water before.  The skies had cleared a bit for us …


From here we drove to Woodbastwick and the Woodforde’s Brewery where Simon wanted to buy some bottles to take back with him.  Back to Wroxham and a quick stop at St John Hoveton where I thought I might find a grave or two …


No luck today with family members but I rather liked this on the wall of the church …


After crossing Ludham Bridge …


we went to the new car park at St Benet’s Abbey where a gale force wind hit us!  Determined to see the work that had been done recently we struggled on …


It was all looking very smart.  Back to the car to recover from our walk and on into Ludham where we were very careful as requested …


Once home it was time for a very welcome cuppa and then Simon went off to Lathams to look for presents to take home.
