Walking

I'm not a great walker. I don't understand the fascination with walking of these people with compasses OS Maps, walking boots and trousers (green) tucked inside socks (green). Even more so when there are hills about.

My walking is stroll a few hundred yards, admire a bird, take a picture or find a comfortable seat to have a read!

But I did enjoy my walk Saturday.

I was on a National Trail don't you know in fact the Peddars Way/Morfolk Coast Path trail that opened in 1986. Well the Peddars way is MUCH older than that

The Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path starts in Suffolk at Knettishall Heath Country Park and follows the route of a Roman road to Holme-next-the-Sea on the north Norfolk coast. At Holme the Peddars Way meets the Norfolk Coast Path as it runs from Hunstanton to Cromer.

The website I "borrowed" that from has a number of "short" walks that look interesting and there is an online guide given places to stay etc.

The short walks are designed to tie up with the coasthopper bus service so you walk from A to B for 5-7 miles and get a bus back. The Norfolk Coast Path is broken up into 7 manageable chunks and each has a map attached.

I think I've decided that I'd like to walk from Hunstanton to Cromer. Now OBVIOUSLY I'm not going to do that in one day...... so my options are to go to Norfolk for a day and do a walk and do the walk over a number of visits OR go to Norfolk for a week and do the walks over a number of days......

TEMPTING!

I'd pick the latter option Pete and make me even more jealous :D.
