Busy Busy

We have had quite a busy day to-day - we went to Sheringham to collect some things we had to take back to the Accountant in Brinningham - Tom my Grandson came with us - and he did the driving - So I sat in the back with Nin and Barney, and Lyn sat in the front with Tom.

We followed the coast road road via Cley and Salthouse (one of Joans Favourite birdwatching spots) The pictures at the top I took for you Joan.

There were quite a few Birdwatchers with their binoculars pointed  skyward -  we saw several Ramblers on the road as well - although it was quite cold the Sun was out and it was quite a pleasant day.

We followed the road through to Brinningham.

Tom had to take a left turning which was quite sharp - and stopped the car just in time - in front of us a car lay in the road up-side-down and next to it another car right side up, obviously they had hit each other - No one appeard to be hurt the Chap in the up-turned car was on his mobile - a car in front of them had stopped to give aide and direct traffic.

There were a couple of people there who seemed to be in control of what had happened...

And we were beckoned on...with just enough room to get past.

We arrived at Brinningham and did our business with our Accountant... and then drove home.

The rest of the journey was uneventful - thank goodness -

We stopped at our favourite little Village shop in Bawdeswell - bought one of the big strawberry swiss rolls - and arrived home to a nice cup of tea and a slice of that cake.....

Thank goodness that nobody was hurt.  Sounds as if it could have been a nasty accident, bet they were not best pleased though.  Glad you enjoyed your trip out.  The roll sounds lovely.

I enjoyed that trip Ally thankyou. A friend has a cottage in Blakeney and we spent time there a while back and visited Wells and Cley etc.(other names escape me at the moment) it was a very enjoyable time in a beautiful part of the country. I love the lighthouse in Cley.  Good job Tom is a safe driver otherwise it could have been pretty nasty!!  That swiss roll sounded delicious.

That was a lovely day, without a doubt. I don't suppose a slice of that Roll would survive a trip across the Pond, now, do you?

I enjoyed the photos especially the one with the ducks alone and the ripples that they make.    It is good that no one was seriously injured in the wreck.   It could have so easily been serious.   Hope you enjoyed the rest of your day.   mark

Hi Ally, you had another lovely day out.  I must say your part of England sounds very enticing, I`ll have to visit Norfolk someday soon.  It`s a shame I`m not eating cake at the moment or I could have begged for a slice of your yummy swiss roll...lol! :o)
