    Yes, we are.
    Possibly this September.
    Coincidentally my husband has just this morning been talking to our new neighbours who also own a home in Southern Spain.
    Apparently it’s best to get the Portsmouth ferry to Santander then it’s a 10 hour drive.
    Once husband has retired in a few years we hope to make the journey part of the holiday and drive through France and Spain but for now with limited leave we will just do the shortest route.

    We’ve booked somewhere in Norfolk from the Tranquil website.
    Adults only, 5 star, all pitches fully serviced.

    Neither of us have visited that part of England so we’re looking forward to exploring.

    Not near you, or at the same time as you!
    You’re going to Hunstanton at the end of August?
    Were about an hour away from you, half way between Cromer and Happisburgh.

    You also have to look out for weird hill billy types that say things like "squayal liyak a peeug." A bit like that part of Staffordshire to the northeast of Hilderstone ... (I know this from my British Telecomm days. You always kept your back to the van up there I can tell you ... :eek:)

    :P

    We couldn't get Lime cordial anywhere either for my lager & lime. They had never heard of it when we went about 6 years ago. One pub did actually put a slice of lime into my lager....ended up drinking lemon juice and lager (not quite the same , even lemonade would have been better which they also didn't have in the bars we went in)
    Just one supermarket had one dusty bottle that had been there for yonks as no call for it.

    Yes we're going to Old Hunstanton in August

    We stayed at Winterton-on-sea (just south of Happisburgh) a couple of years ago.

    The beaches are lovely but they were warning people not to walk near the "cliffs" around Happisburgh.

    If you go to Horsey Gap to see the seals turn off the path and climb over the dunes before you go to the "official" seal watching point.

    We could see more of them from the dunes than the other location and they were closer.

    Just remember to get your pronunciations right. Happisburgh is Haysbra for example.

    Try these, possibly less so now with incomers but still along the right lines.
