One of the places we like to visit, to get into the Christmas feel, is Burnham Market in Norfolk. Unfortunately in 2016 it was raining, but it was still so magical, with all the trees lit up.
The two Americans….. are my niece and her husband, we attended their wedding in 2015 in the US, and some of you might remember, I posted photos of their wedding. They came to stay overnight in April 2016, they were doing the rounds, visiting relations and friends in the UK. My daughter and family came to visit at the same time, and we went on a family day out. I am so late in posting this, but better late, than never……. I hope anyway 🙂 We headed to the North Norfolk Coast, it’s a bit difficult to show off where you live in one day, but at least the weather was good to us. We stopped at Burnham Market first, and had a look around a Norfolk Village, before it got busy. Then we made our way to Wells-next-the-Sea and had a fish and chip dinner, and a go on the slot machines.
I’m having a lot of difficulty in realising that Autumn is really here. I love this time of year, but I am thinking that we didn’t really have much of summer this year. I know we had a very hot late spring, but then it only seems like there were, just odd summer days dotted here and there. Even looking back at my photos, we seem to have had more dull days, than hot beautiful sunny ones…..I know we should go to hot places for our holidays, well we did this year, the French Riviera, but it still managed to rain, although most of the time is was lovely hot sunshine. So just a few late summer photos, to say farewell until next summer, when we do it all over again, but please, just a little less rain 🙂 Still…… I have an awful lot of sunny French photos to post, if I ever get around to sorting them out 🙂

I just liked the shape the roller coaster made against the sky….not that you would ever get me on one 🙂

A few weeks ago, before we went on holiday, all around us in the Fens the air was thick with dust, they had the big combine harvesters in the fields. Now back from holiday, yesterday I noticed they are now harrowing, just glad the dust has settled until next year, when it all starts again.

A few weeks ago, late August 2017, we visited Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast. I had a practise at taking some more evening photos. But as we are still away in France, I was hoping to take some evening photos of Cannes on the French Riviera tonight, but the traffic was horrendous, so we gave up trying to get along the coast. This morning we had a wonderful day driving through the French Alps and saw some amazing rock formations, which I will post later, but my laptop is still not letting me down load any new photos. So while we are away, it will be old photos only 🙂 I must say their wifi in Grasse, where we are staying, is so fast, amazingly so. Anyway hopefully tomorrow I will get to photograph some more old churches to go with the few that I have visited so far.
