Our lovely week with the children at Mundesley in Norfolk.

24 comments


We have been so lucky to have had a brilliant week of lovely warm, dry weather for the whole of our family bucket and spade holiday. We hadn’t stayed in Mundesley before but were lucky to find a house to rent that would comfortably hold the 10 of us and was near to the beach for our grandchildren. We were able to spend most days on the beach and in the sea and a couple of mornings enjoying the surrounding area. I thought I would show you a few of our holiday snaps….
Mundesley Maritime Museum…..This is the smallest museum we have ever seen.

Just by the side of the museum this memorial stands in memory of the many bomb disposal experts who were killed in the line of duty in and around the Norfolk coast between 1939 to 1953…..making our shores safe for us to use to this day….

We visited Sheringham park on one of the days and it is a really lovely place to walk around.

With some beautiful views towards the sea.

…and great trees that are perfect for little climbers…


This is Cromer Pier where we took the children to try their hand at crabbing with crab lines……unfortunately we didn’t catch any.

The house we rented was just right for all of us, we weren’t falling over each other and the garden was safely enclosed so the children could play together without us worrying about them.

This is the view from the garden….

..and the view from our bedroom window was a dream…

We had such fun on the beach and in the sea…

We went into Sheringham on Saturday to see the arrival of over 250 Harley Davidsons. It was a wonderful site and Emily was asked if she would like to sit astride one. All the riders were so friendly and it was a pleasure to look round all of the fabulous bikes. I have never seen so much gleaming chrome…..and I think the sound of the engines is wonderful.


We had such a lovely week together and can’t wait to do it again….:o))))

Thanks for looking everyone. We definitely were lucky with the weather, really warm and not a drop of rain. Perfect in fact.
We love Norfolk Tuesdaybear and have always spent at least 2 weeks each year there on the coast with our children.
They still keep in touch with friends they made when they were little and met up with every year Bloomer. Now they are enjoying it with their own children.
It was great to be all together Moti just having a bucket and spade holiday.
I was really blown away by the bikes Scottish.
We sat on the sea front and ate our fish and chips Dd. My health conscious daughter said she wanted lashings of salt on hers and enough vinegar to make your eyes water....lol. Can't beat proper fish and chips by the sea...
It was a lovely holiday Sheila.
The children loved trying to beat each other Grandmage at getting the kites to fly as high as they would go. There wasn't much wind so there was plenty of kite dive bombing over the cliff edge....A lovely time together.
Thanks again everyone for commenting..

Thankyou so much. You were spot on with the weather forecast Paul. It was perfect. We didn't get up as far as Wells this time where you are going. A week just isn't long enough but my son has to spread his holidays out over the year.
