Clari ... Cromer is definitely 'dog friendly' .... loads of lovely dogs to be see there ... not on the central beach in the main season of course, but walking on the prom is fine ... and lots of doggy meetings and making friends takes place there ... and it's not far until you get past the dog free zone.
Cromer is lovely ... wide sandy beaches and rock pools, lots of history and interesting architecture, plus of course the famous lifeboat and the two famous and heroic coxwains Henry Blogg and Shrimp Davies
and then of course, there's Cromer Pier with its famous End of the Pier Show
and then there's the crab fishermen who go out in their little boats to get the Cromer crabs
And there's safe swimming and surfing, goats on the cliffs, and crabbing off the pier
Traditional shopping ... shops with ladies' vests and winceyette nighties, as well as men's nightshirts ... and a gentlemen's outfitters called 'Dapper Chaps' and the fabulous Hotel de Paris.
What's not to like?
Hello ... We're back ... Spent most of the day at Cromer ( yes, in Norfolk). a walk along the front ( nice and smooth for my foot) an ice cream and a coffee, then a walk back and half an hour laying on the pebbles watching the clouds ( couldn't walk over the pebbles to the sand) then a drink on the pier and eventually to Galton Blakiston's fish & chip restaurant for very fine plaice and chips. A very good day indeed.
I'm absolutely shattered.
I tecorded the tennis ... Shall I watch it
Hello everyone from Cromer pier
Pak choi, mustard leaves and other oriental leafy veg ... they grow quickly and don't tend to run to seed this side of mid summer.
It looks like chicory
Hosta ... love White Company stuff ... I can only think I wasn't in my right mind
And you're right ... there's some gorgeous homes in Cornwall ... but they've the influence of St Ives etc which does help open planners/councillors minds a bit I'm sure.
Raisingirl ... exactly ... white or pale neutrals and stone or bare wood with natural skins and leather here. Just for once we went for a darker shade ... still a neutral but it just swallowed all the light .... what was I thinking ...... the perils of being bored when stuck on the sofa for six weeks
And as for rain coming through the roof ... I remember a certain builder tarring the flat roof of the kitchen before the inside of the roof and ceiling had been done ... but of course, we were living in the kitchen ... tar came pouring through the cracks ... right onto a basket full of freshly ir*ned laundry l of course, as I was married to the builder I was able to impress on him the seriousness of the event!!!
