Seaside Sewing…

Last weekend the forecast was for wintery winds and cold temperatures, but the DH and I threw caution to the wind and braved it just the same and had our first weekend away of the summer season.  Luckily the forecast was wrong and we had 2 days of warm glorious sunshine. 

Our travels took us east towards King’s Lynn where we enjoyed two days visiting some of the local sights.  Our first stop was to Castle Rising, a 12th century castle with lots of corners to explore.

DD2 had a wonderful time discovering the corridors and peering around the corners used by the occupants from all so long ago.

Within the ruins there were many details carved in the stones.  Some were of faces where others were more geometric. 

Our second day took us to Hunstanton where we had sandwiches and chips and I got to do some seaside sewing while DD2 flew her kite.

We took a walk along the beach taking in the distinctive red and white cliffs before it was time to head home.  All in all a good weekend that felt more like a restful week away than just a weekend.  :o)

Until next time...♥
