A windswept Norfolk day

OK, so final day of our family holiday in Norfolk and the weather is still “interesting” (windy and wet). Having seen the forecast of a huge storm in the afternoon we got up at the “crack of a sparrowfart’ to get to the beach early. The flip side of that is that the skies were …
