My Sunday Photo – November 4th, 2018.

We had a rather damp end to October in Norfolk but you know what that means? Lots of lovely rainbows.

Despite the weather, we decided to head to Overstrand last weekend and were treated to some wonderful sights between showers. I was desperately trying to get a photo of Freya with a full rainbow but just as it appeared about 12 people arrived on the otherwise empty beach. Typical.

She enjoyed herself splashing in the tidal pool instead.

It was quite windy and we got attacked by sea foam at one point.

Hope you’ve had a good week and a bright start to November.

Half-term Halloween Fun At Strumpshaw Fen In Norfolk.

IMG_3056

Did you know owls eat their prey whole and then cough up the bits of bone and fur as pellets? Hope you aren’t eating your breakfast! It’s just one of the slightly gory but interesting facts we discovered while following the Halloween trail at the RSPB’s Strumpshaw Fen Reserve.

Freya was hooked before we even entered the woodland when the words “you need to collect six stamps” were mentioned but the self-guided nature trail included loads of fun activities, including the chance to make a boggart (a mischievous goblin-like entity).

Here’s our attempt at a boggart.

As if that wasn’t enough, completing all the challenges earns a small trick or treat prize at the end.

We’ve been to several events at the reserve and always enjoy them. I think this one was even more fun for Freya because she went in her Halloween costume (and wellies).

What I loved is that it takes you into the beautiful woodland, which had been decked out with pumpkins and lanterns, and is a great way to get young children (and adults) to interact with nature. It was also a lovely day and the light made everything look just that little bit more magical.

My Sunday Photo – October 21st, 2018.

Mark and I grabbed a coffee on Wednesday and planned to go and sit and drink it by the river at Thorpe Green. Of course, as soon as we arrived it started to rain (it was 20C the day before) so we had a quick walk along the bank instead.

I always think the light is nicer when the sky is grey, it seems to make the reflections stand out more.

How cute is Buzz the boat? We also had some nosy ducks float alongside us.
