Visit to Seaside

We had a trip to the Seaside to day - Had to go, as we had to see our accountant...and she happens to live by the Coast....It was a miserable day, Grey skies, Windy, and Raining - But the weather forecaster informed us that the day would improve by about 3 O'clock.

We arrived at our destination, When we had finished we decided to do some shopping....So parked in the Town - (Barney had his Muzzle on - so peace and quite).....

We nipped into the Bank,  A friend of Lyn's work there, and asking how he was , he said OK. ....the the girl sitting next to him said "He really isn't fine" - so he explained to us the problem he faces - The Bank is transferring him to another Branch..which will entail a 200 Mile round trip for the week.  He moved House when he got this job to be near to his Work...So he would not have to drive....This seems just so crazy.....to move him so far away......

When we left the Bank it was still raining, only a little harder than when we went in....So we nipped into the nearest Shop - where we bought a couple a Christmas presents.

 

As the car was close by, we decided to make our way home....as we drove along, the rain still pelting down - we both agreed it was just the day for Ducks -

Lyn worked in the Cromer and Sheringham area. so decided to take me to see some Ducks, the Village we were heading for is East Runton, and apparently the Ducks have lived in this one place for years.....When we arrived  I really was surprised to see so many....

It was still raining when I got out of the car.....Took snaps as the wind and rain splashed the Lens of the camera ....the forth picture is of two more of Lyns birthday presents ...."Ducks"

 ..... they are in the hallway at home and must have sneaked in when I wasn't looking - because they have been there for several days !!!!....

We arrived home and it was well past 3 O'clock and it  was still raining - even harder - we unpacked the shopping - and got Barney and Nin indoors. We were both drenched .......

I think the weather forecaster got it wrong today !!!!!!

I like your ducks Ally, real and otherwise, it's lovely that they've been in the same spot for all those years. Feeling sorry for the poor bank man, it does seem stupid to move him so far away. Rache xx

Cromer Sheringham all mean birdwatching holidays for me just love it on the North coast but not when there is a north wind. What is it they say in' Norfolk the North' wind is a lazy wind it does not go round you it goes straight through.  Love Joan.

What a shame the weather wasn`t a bit kinder to you Ally.  I agree, how unfair of the bank to transfer someone like that...obviously no thought went into that decision, and to think we trust them with our cash!

Great to see the ducks but sorry about the weather, it rained nearly all day here as well.  What a shame about the bank man.

    You bought Christmas presents?  I am jealous !  Every year I say I am going to start my shopping early, before the rush ... and it never seems to happen.  Good for you ...  You will be done ahead of everyone else, and can enjoy the holidays while the rest of us are in a mad rush !  Tina http://journals.aol.com/onemoretina/Ridealongwithme

The ducks are lovely.  My Hubby had to drive 160 miles round trip per day to go to work when we lived in Palmer Lake.  It was rough, so my heart goes out to the guy at the bank.  I need to get started on my shopping too.  Thankfully, I don't have that much to buy.

Blessings!~

It's been awful weather here also ... unless you are a duck. I hope they don't have bird flu! At least Lyn's ducks are safe from that!
