We've had several busy weeks one way or another, some of which were spent travelling between Essex, Cornwall and Norfolk where I've had neither computer nor internet so many apologies that I haven't been able to view or comment on your posts of late. Am trying to catch up but inevitably will have missed some of your news. I find it difficult to catch up with just a few days worth of posts let alone a couple of weeks but bear with me.
We spent a lovely time with our son J and his family down in the Cornish town of St Ives in the West Country, where they own a little terraced fishermen's cottage dating back to the late 1800s which is situated close to all of the fabulous beaches that surround St Ives.
The days on the beaches were sunny and fun-filled
The evenings were stunning and tranquil
where the wonderful whiff of a barbecue could often be found
All too soon it was time to head for home where we did a quick turnaround before we ventured east in our camper van to the Norfolk Broads where our daughter E and her family had hired a boat for the week. We booked in at a little site at Ludham which was bang next to their mooring for the time we were there. In fact you can see their boat from our pitch.
A lovely site with spectacular views and open fields all around
We spent three days with them relaxing on board when they took us out on several day-long trips on the river including Horning and Wroxham
The boys really enjoyed their holiday and spent a lot of the time
fishing when moored up for the night.
So relaxing and lunch could always be found at one of the many riverside pubs you could moor up beside.
or even a little bit of what you fancy from the ice cream boat along the way!
All in all we had a wonderful time with both our children and their families - albeit in separate locations but to be treasured always.
Be back again soon. Have a great week
