The Gypsy Life

Been taking a break from blogging recently. When it starts to feel like an obligation, then I feel it's time for a rest.

We are now off for a week in the caravan to North Norfolk - an area we have not visited for years. A gentle landscape, pretty villages, Roman remains, large stately homes and delicious, fresh caught crab. No real plans - just take life as it comes (and hopefully it will come with ice, lemon, tonic and gin!). However, our mosaicist daughter has given instructions that she wants detailed photographs of the Great Wall of Erpingham

Here is a sample of this fascinating construction - the link above will show you much more.



Having researched the internet I see that the Spread Eagle Inn at Erpingham offers good, home cooked food - so, definitely a day spent there.

Sandringham House, the Queen's country home will not be far from the farm where we are parking up, so a visit there will be reserved for a wet day and I guess that there may be some of those. However, we take the line, along with Alfred Wainwright, that "there is no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing" - so we get by.
"Catch you all later", as our colonial cousins would have it.

Avus I would love to do what you are doing....off exploring at your own pace. Thanks for the link. I love this wall! On the same site there is another link to the Victorian Plantation Gardens on Eartham Road just outside of Norwich. These mosaics are also fantastic and similar to Erpingham. Hope you take photos for us to see.

See y'all later, in the South. See you later, other places. Catch isn't so common these days. I should take this over to Separated by a Common Language.

Great Wall.

I just came back after taking a very long break from blogging. And find this post fascinating. As with all your travel posts. My daughter is 19 now and in college, and she talks of traveling all the time, I guess the two of us must come "over the pond" and see some of these sights for ourself. One of these days....nice to read/see you again...

Sometimes Wainwright's sententiousness is unbearable. I imagine him being blown off Striding Edge to the accompaniment of: "And what would you prefer to be wearing now?"

Vita said...

That is a great wall! Your trip sounds fabulous. I haven't found the suitable clothing for weather over 90˚, or the suitable hat.

Have a great time. BTW Thanks for your kind comment over at qarritsulin re my Blue Raleigh poem.

Nea:

Great to have you back. Hope all is well with you.

BB:
a parachute? Yes - he could be a miserable, solitary old bugger, but his books and programmes must have introduced thousands to fell walking.
