.... Northwards to Norfolk ....

We visited bestest mil and were treated to a meal at her 'local' pub
 
I love the really old buildings and the history that is over here
 
Sheringham is on the coast so lovely to have a walk by the beach.... even though the weather is cold it was still essential to have an icecream cone whilst we walked.....
 
 
I keep forgetting to take pictures
but I am being fed
just wanted to assure you
in case anyone worried
 
Here we are
 
 
Our brother and sister in law live in a lovely country village.... walking the country lanes is a delight....


..... and playing around too..... this is our take of the Beatles Abbey Lane..... well..... it was a lane...


the villages have their local signs..... this is their local village sign ....

According to legend the founder of the Gresham family was found abandoned (15th century) in a grass meadow by a young lad who was alerted to that particular place by a grasshopper (thus the golden grasshopper on the sign)... he took the baby to the local farmer and wife who raised him and he grew up to be a financier for Queen Elizabeth I....

 
early barley crops in the land before winter ....
 

Right, Gotto Go.... time to be at the farm at Hemington.....
 
I am reading as many blogs as I can, I do miss all the chats, I see I am missing so many swaps, bargains and giveaways!!!! 
 
... having such a lovely time.....
