Friday afternoon I said to my family: "Let's go camping!" and so we did.
This time we went to the Norfolk Coast stunning seaside, so different from what I was used in Italy.We pitched our tent in a camping site in Stiffkey (a lovely little village with red bricks and flint houses, narrow streets and antiques shops), just above the salt marshes.
You can adventure there and after a long walk you'll reach the sea.
In the late afternoon we went to Holkham beach, where you have to do...guess what? a long walk in the mud before you make it to the amazing sandy beach, quite rewarding I say.
Back to the tent: a barbecue in the dark, star gazing with a cuppa and a nice sleep with concerto for oboes and trombone (lots of snoring people around, the down side of camping even with a bell tent!).
The next day we went to Blackney and then followed a route to Wiventon Hall tearoom&farm for raspberry picking and dinner "al fresco", where I had the best Summer pudding of my life, sadly no pictures of the pudding.
Wells beach was our final destination, there was such a wonderful light, I took some photos on film, dunno about the result but that is what I love with film.
Sadly, this, was our last camping trip of the year, unless the weather goes completely crazy and give us more sunshine and hot days...mhhh I doubt it.
Talking about film, please, have a look at my contribution at Nancy's: get it on the neg.
it looks like a land of desolation!
but with the high tide all this area is covered in water.
I try not to use plastic, I'll keep my plasticized tablecloth for ever, see the horror we are creating.
the tomatoes are the heirloom I planted ages ago, they were delicious.
in the mud.
These are the kind of raspberry we picked and also the ones used for the summer pudding I ate with gusto. Behind the t-room kitchen hens were roaming free, the eggs come from them for the cakes and delicious food served there. This is my ideal way of living: being able to pick up and grow your own food... a dream.
In Wells, another long walk before you reach the sea.
