While we were away on our foggy holiday in north Norfolk we made a trip to Amazona Zoo in Cromer where I completely and utterly fell in love with the baby mara.

The Patagonian mara are funny little things. They seem like a sort of rabbit, sort of deer cross (wouldn’t want to think about that too much). They wander the zoo freely and the first time we visited I remember thinking they had escaped and looking around for someone to alert. As no one else seemed that bothered we just carried on.

Aren’t they gorgeous? They were attracting a lot of attention.

My Sunday Photo – March 18th, 2018.

Even though I have lived in Norwich for more than a decade, there is still so much I don’t know about the city.

For example, I had always assumed that Tombland was named for some macabre reason that was undoubtedly to do with death. I found out yesterday, while taking part in a free City of Centuries walking tour, run as part of English Tourism Week, that is not the case. In fact, our lovely guide, Paul, revealed it is from an old Scandinavian word meaning open space and was once the site of an Anglo-Saxon market place.

It was really enjoyable (although very, VERY cold) to wander the city with someone so knowledgeable. It also allowed me time to stop and actually look at the different buildings (and notice little details I hadn’t seen before) as well as hearing about their history. It wasn’t the best of days to take photos – not least because I couldn’t feel my fingers after a while.

There are several other free tours taking place in Norwich during English Tourism Week, which runs until March 24th. You can find out more here. I highly recommend them.

My Sunday Photo – March 11th, 2018.

We had a little after school jaunt to Cromer on Thursday night where, unsurprisingly when it was 3C, there were not many people out and about.

This meant it was perfect for Mark (and to a lesser degree Freya) to play on her scooter.

It was nice to see my favourite posts again too.

When it got too dark, we bought some chips and made it home just before her normal bedtime, as it was a school night.

It was lovely to be out and about again.

Hope you’ve had a good week.
