Sorry this entry has been so long in coming. Things round here have been very busy and Im still having issues finding net acess.
May's friend Jacky invited the three of us to spend the weekend at her sisters house in Great Yarmouth. We were meet at the station by Jacky and her mum Ivy who drove us the three odd hours out to Great Yarmouth.
On the way we stopped for a pub lunch in Norwich. My first proper pub lunch...yay!
The following day we had an awesome breaky at a cafe by the beach (its crazy they had fries with everything on the menu). In the morning Sonia, May and I and went for a stroll through the local maritime festival. It wasnt the biggest festival but the atmosphere was great and we saw the ship Grand Turk from the tv series Hornblower.
Its amazing to think of all the carved detail in the building and how the heck it was created.....these days we have cranes and scaffolding so how on earth did they manage it back then?
It was definately impressive, you tour through the property and then have the chance to wonder through the beautifully landscaped gardens. We finished our day there with a picnic on the grounds which was lots of fun.
It was a long drive home after that but we stopped for tea at a restaurant on the way....now im sure you dont really care too much about hearing what I ate for tea but i had the most incredible meal which was stacked chicken, bacon and emmental cheese smothered in a hickory sauce.....yum yum yum!
All in all it was a fantastic weekend full of lots of new sights.
