I have written quite a bit about this small coastal town on my blog. Since moving to Norfolk, it has been our destination of choice when we have fancied an afternoon at the beach. It is only nineteen miles from here, so about twenty minutes in the car, when not travelling in peak season. As well as the quaint town and harbour, a long elevated pathway leads to wonderful beaches, fringed by pine forests, and the North Norfolk Coastal Path. Dogs are allowed in certain areas all year round, so it is an ideal place for us to go.
These are all large files, and can be clicked on for detail. However, it was getting late, and heat haze was a problem too.
In August 2012, we had been living here for almost seven months, and we went up to Wells for an afternoon out. Ollie was only six months old and still wearing his junior collar, as he ventured into the sea.
After a long walk along the beach, and a return through the pines, we headed back into town along the elevated path, to where we had parked the car. This is some distance, and takes around forty-five minutes to walk its whole length.
I zoomed in on some of the boats moored there. It was late afternoon, and a hot day. You can detect the haze in the photos.
The small town and harbour in the distance, only halfway along the path.
If you are ever in the area of North Norfolk, I can recommend Wells as a great place to visit. You can combine it with a trip to nearby Walsingham, a place full of history and interest. Here are some links to both places.
