A winter walk at Brancaster Beach

Posted In: Life | Life in Norfolk

Rich and I drove to the North Norfolk coast today. It was a beautiful day so we thought we’d make the most of it with a walk along the beach in Brancaster and a pub lunch. There are lots of great (and fancy) restaurants in this area but we picked the super low-key Jolly Sailors pub. They had the renowned Brancaster mussels on their menu, which I desperately wanted to try. I’m so glad I did; they were delicious. They’re in season until April so you still have a few months to go if you’d like to give them a try? After that, it’ll be time for lobsters and crabs! 

After our lunch, we went to the beach. I wanted to stay until sunset but it was way too cold. We did have a lovely walk for a while though and it was great seeing the kite surfers getting ready to go at sea. Walking along a beach – no matter what the weather is – might be one of my favourite things to do at the weekend. That and going out for brunch. Something for tomorrow?

Are any of my followers based in Norfolk? I’d love to hear where you like going at the weekend.

    Have you explored any of the Suffolk coastline? Places like Southwold, Aldeburgh and Woodbridge are all lovely! x
