Sunday 28 July. Just me and 6 lady companions for today’s 6¼ mile walk along Holkham beach. A clash of dates with Holkham Country Fair meant that it was busy around Holkham Hall but we soon lost the crowds when we headed out along the beach. Sue was suffering from pain in her leg long before we reached the turning point at halfway and her pace began to slow. With more than a mile to go back to the cars she really was suffering. Beryl decided that she would dash ahead to bring her car down Lady Anne Drive to meet us and shorten the walk for Sue. Five minutes later a large pick-up vehicle belonging to the Holkham Estate approached us driving down the rough track. Beryl was the passenger. She must have seen the pick-up and begged a lift for Sue. It was really kind of the driver and I’m sure that Sue greatly appreciated it. Other than this, it was an uneventful walk in super weather conditions; warm with a nice breeze.
