We both had a pretty good night’s sleep. The beds were comfy, and the site was nice and quiet. We got ourselves up and ready, and headed off.
Tonight’s stop is a campsite in Dersingham, not far from Sandringham where the Queen lives, and a drive of about 30 miles. We did think of driving into Ely for a mooch about, but I didn’t fancy having to do any reversing to get in/out of parking spaces, so we’ll go there another time. Instead, we opted to spend the day at the seaside in Hunstanton, a few miles past Dersingham. What should have been a one hour journey took just under two hours, as there was loads of traffic on the roads. Unbeknownst to us, today was the Sandringham Game and Country Fair, which we assume is what was causing all the traffic.
Hunstanton gets a big thumbs up from us, as they have a car park for motorhomes just a short walk from the sea front, and pretty reasonable too at £3.50. The weather was hot and sunny so the place was busy, and it seems to be rather popular with motorcyclists as there were hundreds parked up enjoying the good weather and showing off their bikes. We had a mooch round the shops, and found a nice bistro for lunch – just the one course though, and a healthy fish option too. After stopping by Sainsburys to get some salad bits (and a cheeky bottle of wine for later) we went for a walk along the promenade.
We treated ourselves to an ice cream (well we didn’t have a dessert with lunch!) and then bought a couple of Cromer crabs to have for tonight’s dinner, before heading back to the van and driving back to Dersingham.
The site we’re staying at tonight is a good one, well laid out and good facilities. It was still nice and sunny, so we got the chairs out under the canopy and spent the rest of the afternoon reading.
The crab salad was lush, and we’re now vegging out, planning what we’re going to do tomorrow.
