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.

What a week. I was struck down with Freya’s school germs last Sunday and couldn’t even get out of bed. She was then sent home from school again on Wednesday but I’m pretty sure something else, other than illness, is going on – especially as I had to leave her sobbing my name on Thursday and Friday, which has never happened before. It was heartbreaking.
It’s safe to say I was very pleased when the weekend arrived. To kick it off we went to Cromer on Friday night where is was 18C at 6pm in October! We were on the beach, making sandcastles with no coats in sight. It seemed crazy (but very enjoyable). The shot above is taken from the pier. It’s not technically perfect but I really liked the way it came out. It reminds me of an oil painting.
I hope you’ve had a better week than us.

Before I set eyes on Oxburgh Hall, I was captivated by the church next door, which I saw from the road.
My initial thought about St John the Evangelist was that it looked like a ruin but actually that’s not the case. Apparently, in 1948, its tower and spire collapsed into the south side of the nave. The nave was not rebuilt and remains gloriously open to the elements.
The rest of the church does have a roof, although last November someone stole the lead from the chapel, which means “when it rains outside; it rains inside”, according to the sign. It’s distressing to see the water damage and the floor is lined with buckets to catch the drips (we left a donation to help the appeal to fund repairs).
One of the things the church is famous for is its terracotta tombs. I didn’t know anything about them before we arrived so they were quite a surprise.
