Goodbye Norfolk

It’s Hamish’s last morning walk …

No breakfast in the cottage this morning as we were meeting the boys at Ludham Bridge for our traditional last breks.  Simon loaded the car and had an ‘incident’ with a trolley which unfortunately I didn’t see and so no photos exist!  We said a final farewell to Waters Edge and drove away from our parking space …

After breks I took one last look at the river and saw the houseboat Heather moored up …

Then it was time to hit the road.  Goodbye Norfolk – see you next April!

Really interesting to hear what was happening elsewhere while the storm hit. I was holed up at Salhouse then Ranworth. Will look out for you. Only 3 weeks!

Hope you enjoyed your week, I have some really great memories. I was in Al Fresco's in Ludhum,and a lady came in, she was 92 years old and was so interesting, very spritely and so knowledgeable. She was born in the Kings Arms, and has lived there all her life, with a active role in the church there. She is still an archivist, and people come to see her from all over. I told her about how you visit local graves trying to find your ancesters. She asked me what the name of your family was, but I couldn't remember offhand. Her name is Beulah Gower, and she can be contacted through http://www.ludhamarchive.org.uk/

You may enjoy finding out the information for yourself, but she knows all about who is buried where in the broadland area, not just Ludham, and she was interested who your family was. She is so interesting and likes to chat about times past. Thought I'd let you know.
