Two Days in Norfolk - Day 1

Last week we managed to do something totally new for us - went away for a couple of days without having to plan it for months in advance! The sun came out and we decided to head for Norfolk and the sea!

Town Hall
For another 'first' we stopped at King's Lynn instead of whizzing by on the by-pass. Parking, by accident rather than design, between the 15th century Town Hall and the Minster we found ourselves in the older part of town - an area of  narrow streets leading down to the river.

Back in the 15th and 16th centuries this was a busy, bustling port trading with northern Germany and many of these buildings were warehouses. It's far quieter now!

Then we headed northwards up the coast to Hunstanton with its funfairs and amusement arcades. Yet again, we came away out of pocket.....

...but finished off the day in traditional style with fish and chips eaten looking out to sea
