View from the End of the Pier

Eight of May was a mega-hot day, discouraging a ten-mile hike. A day for the beach, and the cliffs, and the pier, and sea-mists. A day for a day out at Cromer.

The title of the post is a bit of a cheat since I was standing half way along the pier when I took this shot.

    We would have you take a long walk off a short pier, but a short walk on a long pier. 😉

    And that should read “We would NOT have you . . .”
    Confound my changing the sentence structure in mid-sentence!

      It’s okay, Brian, cos the way I was facing when I took that photo, a long walk off the pier would deliver me into the town. So, it’s okay.

        Ah, but what’s in the town? Who knows what evils lurk in the hearts of men?

        Well, one or two pubs, a chippy, a fish shop selling freshly caught Cromer crabs, a church, quite ornate, a small museum with a special geological feature, and a display of the long lost Dogger Land. A train station; bus station, um, the usual stuff. What you don’t find in Cromer are the amusement arcades that line Yarmouth’s seafront. Which is why, when my kids were young, Cromer was always prefered over Yarmouth. Also, the sea can be a real beast here. The photo was taken on a rare calm day!

  3. I love tiny buildings at a distance. This is probably because of my love of miniatures. Shots like this always make me think of miniature villages.

    It does look like a hot day, by the way.

      It was. We had hoped it would be cooler there, as Yarmouth was forecast to be. But, I don’t know how high the temperature soared. The saving fact is, on the coast, when the day starts hot, by noon (or soon after) the sea-mist rolls in. The photos I took later . . . wow, misty.
