We (me and the younger three) are away at a youth hostel this week, for our traditional pre Christmas home ed camp. We’re in Sheringham on the Norfolk coast and there is a lot of crafting and playing and reading and eating going on.
Today though, I needed fresh air. And I declared that Tigerboy needed it too, and dragged him out for a walk down to the beach.
Sheringham has a lovely high street, full of small independent businesses, and charity shops (of course). And when you finally fight your way past all the very attractive (to three year old) windows there’s a marvellous art trail along the sea front, with pictures of coastal life.
Tigerboy particularly liked this one
and I love how realistic it looks. All of that is painted, the rocks and bricks and door frame. (Not the steps or the railing, just in case you were wondering.)
And because it’s lifesize, a lot of it is at small boy eye height, so he could really appreciate it, much more than lots of art.
Time to leap into a boat?
We also enjoyed the bird life.
Probably an immature lesser black backed gull, I’m told on instagram, he really really wanted our crisps.. He didn’t get them, as there were far too many big gulls around waiting to swarm.
All in all it was a lovely walk. And we got back in time for hot chocolate, and me to watch the sunset.
A good day.
