Whenever I go away somewhere rural in England I always wonder what it would be like to live there. My DH always jokes that he’d have to be a bank manager and I’d have to run Mary’s Big Hair Boutique (I might point out I can barely style my own short hair, let alone anyone else’s). I’m always surprised that we jump to these clichés first, when in this digital age, it doesn’t really matter where you live.
We’ve just had a week on the North Norfolk coast. We had a brilliant time, unlike Annie from Insideology when she visited the area. And yes I idled away a few moments imagining a life there; it was short lived, as I love my buzzy city too much. BUT The North Norfolk coast really is an absolute breath of fresh air, literally and figuratively. Big wide skies and sandy beaches, steam trains and great pubs. Oh and crab sandwiches. It’s why I love it so much. I know I live beside the sea but the Norfolk coast is a million miles from Brighton.
We found time to visit several of our favourite spots; Holkham, Wells-Next-the-Sea, Salthouse and Holt. But the beaches always drew us back.
