There was a time when I spent every weekend walking with Cambridge Rambling Club, a time before Geoff started all this travelling and I fell in love with my bike, now I still like the walking but to get a decent walk usually involves a lot of driving which I don’t like.
I keep in touch with Cambridge Rambling club and when I saw they had a weekend booked at the Activity Centre in Brancaster Staithe I jumped at the chance to go and invited my friend Gina along too.
Luckily for me I was just starting to feel better so this weekend was just the tonic i needed, a gentle start back to exercise with lots of chatting and catching up with people i had not seen for over a year.
The activity centre was clean comfortable and well equipped with an excellent kitchen,spacious lounges and a pub near by.
We made our own breakfast and had our evening meals in the Jolly Sailors where the food was good and the service excellent, best of all it meant no cooking or washing up.
We enjoyed an excellent 19 mile walk on the Saturday heading in land through Holkham hall grounds, where many Deer were seen,then back along the coast path, which was just wonderful, we often forget about the great places we have right on our doorstep.
No need to worry about navigation on these walks or getting lost as Jill who organises them is an expert, so we could just relax, enjoy, chat and walk.
Sunday after packing everything away we headed to Hunstanton along the coast path and the many boarded walks, a favourite of mine with lovely memories of the many walks when I first met Geoff. The coastal bus was caught to get back to our cars but Gina and I stayed a while longer as the weather was so nice and we fancied tea and cake to end a fab weekend.
A total of 32 miles walked in lovely winter sunshine.
So a big thank you to Cambridge Rambling club for a fab weekend of walking and when Geoff finally decides to stay in England long enough I shall get him out on a Sunday Ramble…….
