Norfolk Camping

We spent the last weekend of July camping in Norfolk.  We stayed in the back garden of the Duke pub in Bacton.  Nick, Nadege and Noe camped with us, and my Mum & Dad (in their motorhome) and sister (in our tent) stayed on the Saturday night.

Pip, Liz, the girls and I went to Merivale Model Village in Great Yarmouth on Saturday afternoon, which was everything I hoped for!

On the Sunday we spent the morning on Cromer beach where Indie had an early birthday party.  Then the Suffolk Mosses returned home and the rest of us searched out some prime kayaking grounds.

We ended up at Blakeney, which is a beautiful little coastal village.  Well, it’s not quite coastal – it’s separated from the sea by a mile or so of salt marsh, with a narrow channel connecting the harbour to the sea at high tide.  We were there at low tide, but as the kayaks only draw around 6″ I thought we’d be able to make it.

After an hour of wading along the mud, pulling the boats through the 3″ trickle, we gave up waiting for the promised incoming tide, turned round and waded back to the cars.  The trip was beautiful, and we met a surprising number of mud-dwelling Norfolk people in the middle of the marsh, but it wasn’t really what we expected.

Monday was spent hiding from the sun in Norwich castle, which is brilliant for kids.  Although they’re not allowed in the dungeons or battlements, which limits the enjoyment for not-kids.
