Born and brought up in Norfolk and now living elsewhere, but my roots will always be in my home county.  Came back to walk the Norfolk coast path from Hunstanton to Happisburgh over 7 days.  One of the most beautiful coastlines you will ever see, teeming with wildlife and hardly any humans! The variety of nature is a wonderful experience, from the red and white cliffs at Hunstanton, to the wild marshslands of the Burnhams and through delightful Wells (fish and chips on the harbour wall is a time honoured tradition), to picturesque Salthouse and then the long shingle walk to Weybourne. Too many different birds to mention them all but loved seeing the herons and caught a barn owl gliding over the marshes. Once reaching Cromer pier, coffee in the Rocket Cafe (great views out to sea) waiting for the tide to go out a bit before starting the long walk down the east coast. Picking my way over the groynes, down past Overstrand, Trimingham and then the colourful beach huts of Mundesley. Watching the gulls skimming the waves and the sun catching the soft sand cliffs.  From Mundesley past the slightly eerie Bacton terminal and on down to Happisburgh and the welcome sight of the lighthouse, where I was blessed with the most amazing rainbow and then a wonderful sunset.  56 miles of walking bliss.
