Wells-next-the-Sea

Up a bit earlier today trying to change our late night habits to make the most of our winter holiday. It’s another lovely morning. Again it was a bit of a headache finding a suitable campsite but we got there eventually.

Our route takes us along the A149 which is the coastal road but it’s definitely a B road really and at a couple of points is single track! We hoped to stop in a couple of places on route but parking was scarce. In the end we stopped at Wells-next-the-Sea, what a great name. IMG_20200127_124623-1843x909

It’s a proper small old fashioned seaside resort with fish and chips, rock shops and an arcade. There’s a working port and an active fishing fleet. Back from the harbour front are Georgian houses and lots of tea shops. We enjoyed a spot of lunch after wandering around the town.

Wells is famous for its beach huts so we walked along the flood defences to the beach to see them. A local told us that the dunes that sat behind the huts were blown away by ‘the beast from the east’ storm and ever since the huts have had to be repeatedly raised as they are being buried by the sand.

By now it’s 3:30pm and time to move on to our campsite near Cley next the Sea. At last here we have some mobile signal, as EE seem to be very patchy in Norfolk. Happy to catch up on my blogging!

Steak for tea, followed by a catch up with Rach and then a tromp down the hill for a pint at the Three Swallows. A good day on the road.IMG_20200127_214644-1843x909IMG_20200127_214059-1843x909
