I went into town today to do some shopping and whilst i was there I got caught in a hail storm. One minute it was raining and then the next hail was coming down. The hail didn't last long but when it stopped there were for a brief moment a few snow flakes in the air. When I got home there was still a few patches of hailstones on the grass.

Today the weather is bright and sunny - cold but still sunny.
I took a photo of the tower of our parish church. Earlier in the year someone replaced the flag on the flag pole with a new, bigger flag but the flag was too big and on a particularly windy day it got caught on the nearby weathervane and ripped. Ever since, the weathervane has been wrapped in the torn flag.

This afternoon this pile of logs ............
...... was transferred into this neatly stacked pile. I know there aren't as many logs as someone else has (nudge, nudge, wink, wink D&J!) but hopefully it will last us over the winter.

We were given this bush many years ago by the District Council. They had an initiative to make front gardens more pretty and residents could request a free tree for their garden. After planting the bush we thought it had died because it didn't do much, but in the last few years it has sprung to life and now has lovely red berries on it. Unfortunately because we thought it was dead it has been neglected for a few years and isn't the best shape or in the best place so it may have to be removed at some point in the future.

I went outside into the garden this afternoon and when I turned round found someone watching me from the open door. I think she was curious as to why I would venture outside on such a cold miserable day and suspicious that I might make her got outside too.

Today is our last full day in Norfolk so we made a return trip to Sea Palling for a last walk along the beach. Sea Palling is fast becoming a close contender for taking the crown from Winterton-on-Sea as out favourite beach.
Sea Palling has a fabulous blue flag sandy beach. A number of reefs have been built as part if the coastal defences and it calms the waves making it a lovely place for an autumn walk.
In the afternoon we decided to take a drive up the coast to Cromer. I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed with Cromer but maybe if the weather had been better and we had been able to explore more we would have found some hidden treasures.
It was decided that we would play Crazy Golf today so we headed to Great Yarmouth seafront to the Castaway Island Crazy Golf Course.
I managed to score two holes in one but the overall winner was Wayne.
Later in the day we went for a walk on the beach at Sea Palling.It was the first time we had been to this beach and by coincidence on the day we were there a Humpback Whale had been spotted off the coast - the first sighting on written record. There were lots of people on the cliffs with huge binoculars hoping to get a glimpse of the whale. We didn't see it but maybe it saw us!
