Hunstanton and Heacham

Sunday 15 November. Ten of us turned up today for Helen’s walk from Hunstanton to Heacham and back. It was incredibly blustery and we walked into a strong headwind for the first part of the walk. The bonus was that we had the wind behind us on the way back. I didn’t start my GPS until a little way into the walk but it was about 8¾ miles with virtually no ascent.

We walked along the beach for a little while but this was hard going so we soon headed up to the paved path on top of the sea defences. Coffee and lunch stops were taken at the car park/café on South Road at Heacham with a 3-mile circuit of Heacham Harbour in between. Our return leg was on the old sea defences a hundred yards or so inland from the beach. This passed through a sea of static caravans which were packed like sardines on their site to either side of us. Not my idea of a perfect seaside holiday residence.

Apologies for some of the pictures being a little out of focus. I must have pressed the button too quickly and not allowed sufficient time for my camera to properly focus.

I forgot to say that today’s walk has taken me to just beyond my target of walking 1,000 miles this year.
