Dilham Canal, pt 2.

The combination of a sunshine forecast and a Bank Holiday weekend did it for Ian. By 6.30 am, we were on the road armed with just a camera, sunglasses and a bottle of water. At least one of us was fully awake too! My husband has many qualities but he can be just a shade too irritatingly exuberant in the morning. I like to think of myself as an early bird but my reactions and sunny disposition are still really dependent on two strong coffees for a full kickstart. Today, I was limited to just the one .

We headed out to Dilham, a tranquil part of North Norfolk where we’ve been lucky enough to spot otters at play in the past. Mr Otter was elusively camera shy today but it was still joyous to walk along the canal bank in the spring sunshine. Solitude was ours; this is never a well trekked path but today we saw not a single other soul. On the other hand, we did see lambs, deer, finches, swans, geese, and were serenaded by an elusive cuckoo as we ambled along. Happily, the sun’s gentle rays and beautiful hedgerow soon warmed my mood too.

Proving that you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy a good day out x
