Yesterday’s walk at Cley-next-the-Sea could best be described as “bracing” with a strong wind blowing in off the sea. Only 7 hardy souls turned out for an interesting walk. The outward leg along the shingle sea defences certainly blew the cobwebs away as can be seen in the accompanying pictures. The planned route across the salt marshes was under water and we had to make a short detour along a parallel road to access the village of Salthouse. At this point we visited an art exhibition in the church staged by John Hurst of Marshall Arts. His watercolour pictures were about ??250 each so I had to settle for a couple printed greetings cards at ??2 each. Only Hilary opted to take the shorter route to go and see some flamingos whilst the rest of us completed the 7?? mile walk.
