Cambridge, Cromer and Ely (part 2)

Last week David and I were on our little break away in Cambridge, Cromer and then Ely. It seems an age away since I’ve been back at work for a week. Anyway, let me update you on some of the pics before I succumb to an afternoon nap, subject to noise from my resident guitarist.

Do you think I should find this couple to sell them their romantic beach pic?! They have no idea I took this in Cromer.

David and I found a great cocktail bar/microbrewery just around the corner from our rented flat. This is some sort of fruity margarita I had.

I’m getting into taking pictures of boats.. I think these were in Sheringham. It was cold and blustery there.

My sister asked me to keep an eye out for seals. We visited Blakeney point but it started raining so we didn’t fancy going on the seal spotting trip. So the only seals I spotted were on this mural in Cromer by the seaside.

This bookshop was so cute.

This is the Cley windmill. You can hire it for parties and accommodation.

The best thing in Cley, apart from the windmill, is this gorgeous smokehouse shop.

I bought some chilli smoked mackerel (delicious!) and David had a tub of smoked mussels. This place delivers in the UK and I have a voucher for 5% off Christmas orders so I’m thinking of placing an order nearer the time for a buffet for Christmas Eve or Boxing Day. They also currently have 10% off all orders until 17 October. You can check it out here. So many yummy looking fish products as well as homemade pies etc. Spoiled for choice.

We did a gorgeous cliff top walk from Cromer to Overstrand Beach.

We passed the lighthouse. Yep, still not raining here!

At the end of the walk we reached this cliff top café a lady at the start of the walk had recommended to us. It didn’t disappoint.

We shared an enormous piece of cookies and cream homemade cake. I think there were 10 different cakes in total. I wanted to do the walk 10 times to try them all! The tea shop lady made me the best cup of tea, just the right strength, in a lovely big mug. Cromer is considerably cheaper than Windsor for eating out at cafés and restaurants. We got lunch for two including soft drinks for about £12. each day in Cromer. In Windsor this would be more like £20.

This was my favourite beach hut.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.. this was one of the Runtons.. ?East Runton.


Next stop Ely… to be continued in Part 3. 🤗 X.
