The pretty coastal village of Mundesley is some seven miles south-east of Cromer on the Norfolk coast. It is within the Norfolk Coast AONB and was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The beautiful sandy beach, which is overlooked by colourful beach huts, is one of the cleanest around. There are plentiful sands stretching for miles with very little shingle. A few years ago it was voted the Best Blue Flag Beach in Britain.

In WWII the beaches in this part of the country were very heavily mined in order to deter an invasion, and it took many years and cost the lives of a number of bomb disposal experts to make all the beaches safe again. There is a memorial to them on the top of the cliff.

This will be my last posting for a little while as we are going down to our holiday home in Cornwall for two or three weeks. Very many thanks to you all for visiting my photostream and leaving so many nice comments, which I very much appreciate. I'll try and catch up with you when we get back.

When we visited Norfolk recently we rented a little cottage on the outskirts of the pretty little village of Burnham Market. The centre of the village is set around a large green with rows of beautiful old houses and other buildings on two sides.

According to British Listed Buildings the Hoste Arms probably dates originally from the 17th century, but there have been verious alterations over the years and much of the exterior dates from the 1800s. It is Grade II-listed.

Morston Quay is on the North Norfolk coast, tucked away amongst the salt marshes. Some 400 years ago it was a major port, but over the years this got silted up, and it is now home to a number of small boats, including a handful of fishing boats and boats that take tourists out to see the seals at Blakeney Point. This area is part of Blakeney National Nature Reserve, and is owned by the National Trust.

This pretty little village was literally a five minute drive up the road from the cottage we hired for a week in Norfolk recently.

The village lies on the River Burn, which flows through its centre. One mile to the north of the village along the river lies the ruined Creake Abbey. The village itself musters a church, a public house and a post office. Most of the agricultural land surrounding the village, and many of the village houses, today belong to the estate of the Earl Spencer, whose family seat is many miles away in Althorp, Northamptonshire. He is the brother of the late Princess Diana.

It's nice to see the garden bursting into flower in the spring, and the irises outside our front door make a very colourful display. We had a shower of rain shortly before I took this, and somehow raindrops always add something to pictures of flowers.
