Are you lost if you’re happy there!

The best thing about caravanning (apart from the cheap price!) Is the ability to be at one with nature. There are a number of reasons for this, the sites we pick are always pretty rural, the caravan is not huge so going outside gives you a people break, you have to walk to the loo ( I know there’s one inside but that’s only for emergency’s, emptying, yuk!) So when we caravan we always get lots of fresh air and exercise. This weekend has been no exception.

We have been staying on a site right on the edge of Sheringham Park. A lovely old country park known for its Rhododendrons. Apparently years ago it was the height of fashion to traipse through the bushes wearing a cocktail dress and Wellington boots drinking champagne. Having never been invited to that sort of an event I had to make do with wearing walking boots and drinking  bottled water.

We wandered along a path admiring the trees and plants. Listening to the birds and even at one point getting a fleeting glimpse of a deer as it broke cover to move through the undergrowth.

Hundreds more bluebells, primroses and meandering streams. The sun shone, no one else was in sight, what could be better?

We turned a corner and there it was…

The sea.
Ok we didn’t get to it but it was there, just on the horizon.

It’s at times like this I wish we were organised because quite honestly we didn’t know where we were.  Luckily a more knowledgeable couple passed with an OS map and told us we were in Weybourne. Which was fine but actually we hadn’t heard of there before and were none the wiser as to where it was in relation to where we were going back to.

So we just turned around and retraced our steps. We got home so that was enough!
Message to self… Buy your own  OS map!
